NOMINATE A CANDIDATE
Are you part of an organisation and would you like to support some outstanding young leaders to get a seat at the UPG Sustainability Leadership 2023 Class?
The support of the organisation strengthens their capacity to make an impact after the training – this increases their chances of being selected. And in turn, the organisation benefits in various ways by having an individual who has received training in positive citizen leadership on sustainability.
The candidate that you nominate will have better chances to get access to a global community of like-minded and highly motivated young leaders (aged 18 to 35).

LOCAL IMPACT AND GLOBAL RESULTS
With the support of courageous people and organisations, a total of 586 UPG Sustainability Leaders have been trained in two classes (2019 and 2021) and 120 of them were granted the opportunity to get an additional immersive training on Hurricane Island in USA – where they are presented with different experiences to understand how to address the challenges of specific ecosystems in a sustainable way, exploring the local environment, understanding problems, challenges, and thinking about sustainable solutions based on field investigations.
The UPG Sustainability Leaders are part of a worldwide supporting network composed of young leaders from over 100 countries working on their local projects and training their communities about the importance of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (the SDGs) and also on how to use UPG’s Four Pillars to move from “ideals and goals” to “positive action”.
In 2021, those young adults have gone through a 9-week intensive training which curriculum includes training in project management, stakeholder engagement, communication, digital communications, and much more. Sustainability Leaders also explored how sustainability is related to economics, politics, law, culture, technology, education, and more.
“The goal of this training is to increase the capacity of UPG Sustainability Leaders to lead at least one project of their own choosing in their community. In addition, upon the conclusion of this training, UPG Sustainability Leaders conduct a secondary wave of mini-training sessions within their communities; contributing to a ground swell of informed citizens taking positive action and demonstrating sustainability leadership.”
Until August 2021 the UPG Sustainability Leaders have trained over 14,000 citizens worldwide through online and in-person sessions, and this is only the beginning.
“We started small and we focused on doing what we do with love. Today we are humbled by the impact that we are having around the world. We are inspired by the commitment of young people as well as by the quality of partners and collaborators that are working with us. Thank you! Together we are making the world a better place. Please let us keep building,” Yemi Babington-Ashaye. President, United People Global.
