The United People Global Sustainability Leadership Program 2023 (fully-funded training in the US) is now accepting applications for participants. It is the most comprehensive sustainability leadership program available for young adults, 18-35 years old, who want to make the world a better place through their actions.

UPG is a movement based on the commitment to solve problems with what we have, rather than waiting for someone else to step in. Essentially, it is a movement that asserts that everyone can contribute to a more sustainable world. 

UPG believes sustainability includes BOTH the usual "green" issues such as planting trees, recycling waste, managing energy, and protecting the oceans. The other problems that have been at the heart of our societies for many years, such as education, health, employment, gender equality, sustainable consumption, and sustainable production.

Selection Criteria:

UPG is looking for young, determined people from all different paths of life and regions of the world. From well-experienced professionals to freshly graduated students. The selection process considers four factors:

  • Your Profile - this helps us to strive for diversity

  • The Potential for Impact


  • This program is open to young leaders who are 18 to 35 years old by October 1, 2023. For the duration of the training and experiences, all participants need to be within this age group.
