The Environmental Leadership Programme involves ‘access behind the scenes’ sessions with some of the UK’s most senior leaders. 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.

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

Each participant is individually matched with a coach and/or mentor who supports them on a one to one basis throughout their time on the programme. All participants then work with other UpRisers to design and deliver a social action campaign on an environmental/sustainability issue they are passionate about.

The programme focuses on raising knowledge and awareness of Energy and Climate Change; Food and Water; Nature and Conversation; and Sustainable Cities. As well as forming networks with senior figures, the programme enables participants to develop leadership skills, whilst building strong networks amongst their peers on the programme; establishing the next generation of environmental leaders at local and national levels.

The Environmental Leadership Programme is funded by the Big Lottery Fund; administrated by the Wildlife Trust as part of the Our Bright Future project. UpRising is working with a range of organisations as part of the initiative including; Wildlife Trust, National Trust, Friends of the Earth, Field Studies Council, Conservation Volunteers, and Centre for Sustainable Energy.
