Do you want to develop your leadership skills whilst also tackling important environmental issues?


The programme will run from April to September. It is completely free and will take place online. Whilst on the programme, you will:

Kickstart your green career

You’ll meet industry experts who can give you guidance and insight into the green sector and the career opportunities available to you.

Attend expert-led, online workshops

You’ll attend workshops on topics such as sustainability, making political change, and campaign messaging. You’ll gain the knowledge and skills needed to bring about real change.

Learn how to run a social action campaign

During the programme, you’ll work with peers to create a social action campaign about an issue you care about. Previous campaign groups have dealt with topics such as water wastage, fast fashion, and plastic use. You can find out more here. 

Be part of a supportive community

The programme is open to 18-24 year olds from across the United Kingdom, so you’ll have the chance to meet and grow your networks with like-minded people.

I highly recommend this programme because this great opportunity allows you to meet some very unique individuals from various different fields, who are all extremely passionate and focused on nurturing nature for a better future.
