UPG SUSTAINABILITY LEADERSHIP

UPG Sustainability Leadership mobilises people and organisations to support positive citizen leadership on sustainability. We bring together people who are committed to impact and committed to getting there through positive action.

Every individual and  organisation can play a positive role.

UPG Sustainability Leadership - Taking Action

UPG Sustainability Leadership is being built by citizens, UPG Champions. UPG believes that sustainability includes BOTH the usual “green” issues such as planting trees, recycling waste, managing energy, protecting the oceans AND that it also includes other issues that have been central to our societies for a long time such as: education, health, jobs, gender equality, sustainable consumption, sustainable production and more. For those who are familiar with it, UPG uses the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)  as a guide

This initiative is currently comprised of several activities which appear below and which are described further below. Please explore and join any part of the initiative that you can contribute to.

SUSTAINABILITY LEADERS

More Information about UPG Sustainability Leaders

UPG Sustainability Leaders are trained in partnership with the Hurricane Island Center for Science and Leadership. Each training takes place on Hurricane Island (in the USA) and the flight, accommodation and the training costs are covered – Sustainability Leaders do not have to pay for this. The trainings are done for three separate groups or cohorts in June, August and September.

UPG Sustainability Leaders spend 5 days learning and preparing for their mandate. The syllabus includes training in project management, stakeholder engagement, communication, digital communications and much more. Sustainability Leaders also explore how sustainability is related to economics, politics, law, culture, technology,education and more

The goal of this training is to increase the capacity of Sustainability Leaders to lead at least one project of their own choosing in their community. In addition, upon the conclusion of these trainings, 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.
