UK-GBC Future Leaders programme announces class of 2017

The UK Green Building Council (UK-GBC) has revealed the names of 24 sustainability professionals who have been selected to embark on its Future Leaders programme 2017.

Now in its fourth year, the programme brings together professionals in the early stages of their careers from across the built environment industry to take part in a unique nine-month programme to develop skills in personal leadership, collaborative thinking, business model development, innovation and storytelling. 

The course starts with a two day residential in January, followed by a series of innovation workshops, and will finish in an evening of presentations to industry leaders in September 2017.

Future Leaders provides a forum for tomorrow’s leaders to grapple with the most critical issues that the sector will face in the future, and challenges participants to work collaboratively to address these. 

Graduates from the programme are able to join the exclusive Future Leaders alumni network.
