Next Up Climate Leadership Program

With support from Alberta Ecotrust, Next Up Leadership is launching a new program in Alberta. The program aims to build climate leaders in sectors outside of the traditional climate movement and is looking for applicants across Alberta. The workshops are held on weekends in Kananaskis, Calgary, and Edmonton. They can help with travel costs if that is a concern.

Next Up does great work and we  highly recommend this opportunity. Program details are below, please share this with your colleagues and networks.


Next Up Climate Leadership Program

The Climate Leadership Program is intended to engage keen citizens in leadership training to explore and drive low carbon activities in their workplaces and communities. It is a 5 weekend intensive program for folks 25 and older. It is to develop climate leadership in sectors outside of the traditional climate movement.

Participants will learn a mix of the skills taught in the full length Next Up program, along with details of Alberta’s climate policy, and how to apply these in creating and supporting climate justice within their personal areas of action. Applications are due by January 24, at 11 pm. The application and further program info are available online.

If you are in the Calgary area you are invited to an information night on Jan 14, from 7 – 8 pm at the CommuntyWise Resource Centre, at 223 12 Ave SW in Calgary. Guests will meet the Program Coordinator, members of the advisory committee as well as some CLP resource people and Next Up alumni. After the evening, you will have a good idea of the scope of the CLP and it’s learning environment.
