A bold initiative to train 1 million environmental leaders by 2025
Our goal is to train at least 1 million environmental leaders across more than 36 countries by 2025. The program will focus on developing andtraining a global network of environmental leaders who will take action in their communities and beyond to solve some of our most pressing environmental challenges. Our environmental leadership training combines environmental literacy knowledge and the development of a bias foreffective action. The training will be supported by a network of 50+ trainers who will co-create the curriculum, with the support of leading environmental organizations.
The Myanmar Green Leaders Academy is an online program which will run from June 17th to July 2nd, 2021. It is part of a broader initiative led by 10 Billion Strong which aims to train 1 million green leaders in 36 key countries by 2025.
The program will be conducted in English and is focused on preparing emerging youth leaders to understand key environmental issues, and learn how to use the civic engagement to effectively address environmental challenges.
The program content will be available via an online learning management system (LMS) called Crew. Participants will login to access readings, course lectures, and submit reflections and short assignments.Participants can complete their work at any time that works for their schedule. This asynchronous learning methodology will allow flexibility for participants who may have unstable internet access. However, we ask that participants be able to devote 1-2 hours for coursework each day.
