To build the next generation of climate leaders, Youth Climate Leaders (YCL) offers a learning journey to Germany, where young people can learn more about climate change in theory, understand it in practice, and work on hands-on projects to start their careers in this field. Be part of this unique expedition and start your career on climate change!
With the YCL program, we want to shift the image of young people as “leaders of the future” to the “leaders of today.” Our main goal is to empower a diverse group of young leaders from all over the world with leadership and entrepreneurial skills to be used right now to address climate change.
Program dates:
Berlin, Germany: from 02 to 10th of August 2019
Bonn, Germany: from 10 to 16th of August 2019

YCL Immersion program is developed using 5 main components: 
1) Multicultural experience, where you can understand in practice how climate change affects different countries while working with people from around the world
2) Professional development: a group project for intrapreneurs who want to work in an established organization, or a tailored curriculum for entrepreneurs and researchers who want to develop their own projects
3) Visits and cultural activities: exclusive access to leading organizations and experts from different sectors, together with special tours to explore Germany
4) Life and career mentorship: work with facilitators to set up your life and career goals, discover your place within climate change and build the right connections to get there!
5) Access to opportunities after the program: such as job vacancies, Field Placements and Delegations to global events.
