1M1B's Future Leaders Programme
UN-accredited not-for-profit organisation 1M1B (One Million for One Billion) Foundation has announced the launch of a new batch for its ‘Future Leaders’ programme. The aim of the Future Leaders program is to find and nurture the world’s most promising youth leaders into human-centred leaders by taking action towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The theme for Future Leaders programme 2022 is Climate Action & Sustainability.
Climate change is already happening and it is the most critical issue that needs immediate attention and action. Climate action is also one of the 17 SDGs to transform our world.
The objective of the Future Leaders Programme 2022 is to produce future leaders in Climate Action & Sustainability who can choose to address climate-related causes around energy, water, farming, food, fast fashion, sustainable menstruation, climate migration, plastics, climate jobs, marine lives and more.
The top students from the programme are selected on the basis of their project work and a Super 7 self-evaluation criteria to participate in a 3-day trip to New York where they are given the opportunity to showcase their impact as youth advocates at the 1M1B Youth Summit at United Nations Headquarters in New York City and will have the opportunity of talking about their work to diplomats, media, foundations, and influencers from across the world. Over 120 1M1B youth from India have presented their work at the United Nations, New York. Additionally, the top students are provided other opportunities like workplace experiences and micro-internships with organizations, interactions with global leaders, media coverage and international speaking opportunities.
At the end of the program, students emerge as human-centric leaders who prioritize human values and morals over business and profits.
