Applications open for Environmental Leadership Programme until 17 October


The Environmental Leadership Programme, run by Uprising, is a nine month programme, involving ‘access behind the scenes’ sessions with some of the UK’s most senior leaders across the environment and sustainability sector.

The programme offers participants a unique first-hand view of the way that political, business, public sector and community organisations work together to shape our environment and build a sustainable future. Each participant is individually matched with a coach and a mentor who supports them on a one to one basis throughout their time on the programme.

All participants work with other UpRisers to design and deliver a social action campaign on an environmental issue they are passionate about.  As well as forming networks with senior figures, participants also build strong networks amongst their peers on the programme.

Through this programme we equip participants with the knowledge, networks, skills and confidence to reach their leadership potential and take social action on issues they care about.

Most sessions and workshops take place in the evening so that the programme can be fitted around work, study and other commitments.
