The 2050 Climate Group launches the second year of their Young Leaders Development Programme

May 4th, 2017 Posted by News No Comment yet

The 2050 Climate Group is excited to announce the launch of the second Young Leaders Development Programme (YLDP). Following the success of last year’s YLDP, a new intake of 132 young professionals aged 18-35 will be given the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills and knowledge of climate change, equipping Scotland’s next generation of young leaders with the skill set needed to drive Scotland towards a low carbon future.

 

Richard Dryburgh, Chair of the 2050 Climate Group, said, “Last year’s inaugural Young Leaders Development Programme exceeded all of our expectations and has given us an impressive platform to build on. This year’s programme has been designed to have even bigger and better impact across our themes of engaging, educating and empowering leaders. With the support of our funders, partners and volunteers, I am very excited to begin ‘YLDP2’ so we can expand our growing network of young leaders in climate action across Scotland.”

 

The second Young Leaders Development Programme will follow a year-long programme consisting of six modules held across Scotland, as well as an Induction event and a Summit at the end of the year. The core modules cover two specific themes: improving climate change knowledge and enhancing leadership skills. Throughout the programme, participants are also encouraged to actively implement what they have learnt through a range of “actions”, which aim to provide the necessary steps to a more sustainable Scotland.  

 

Cabinet Secretary for the Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform, Roseanna Cunningham MSP at the induction of the Young Leaders Development Programme last Thursday, said, “It’s great to launch the second year of the Young Leaders Development Programme. I look forward to seeing this innovative programme go from strength to strength, helping us ensure that Scotland remains at the forefront of climate change action. I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank all the members of the 2050 Climate Group for their valuable contributions to Scotland’s action on climate change through the engagement, education and empowerment of future young leaders.
