About the UPG Sustainability Leadership Program
This open application is for the UPG Sustainability Leadership Class of 2023. UPG Sustainability Leadership is a movement that mobilizes individuals and organizations to support positive citizen leadership on sustainability.
It is a movement that encourages and enables citizens at all levels to take positive action. A movement inspired by the UPG’s commitment to do what we can with what we have rather than wait for someone else to act. It is a movement that embodies the notion that everyone can do something to make the world more sustainable. We are committed to enhancing your experience and value your input on how we can achieve this goal. Know that your feedback is crucial to us, and we look forward to collaborating with you to enhance our services. Please don’t hesitate to share your thoughts with us so that we can provide better assistance.
UPG believes that sustainability includes both the usual “green” issues, such as planting trees, recycling waste, managing energy, and protecting the oceans, and other problems 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.
