Green Leaders is a nine-month Environmental Leadership Programme involving access behind the scenes with some of the UK’s most senior leaders. The programme offers participants a unique first-hand view of the way that the political, business, public sector and community organisations work together to shape our environment. The programme equips young people with the knowledge, networks, skills and confidence to reach their leadership potential and take social action on environmental issues they care about.
Young adults from marginalised communities will:
have the knowledge, skills, networks and confidence to fulfil their green leadership potential
have the knowledge to help shape their environments and influence community, local and national policy
have the skills to help shape their environments and influence community, local and national policy
have the networks to help shape their environments and influence community, local and national policy
have the confidence to help shape their environments and influence community, local and national policy

Hard-to-reach communities will:

benefit from environmental actions that improve their natural and built environment.
