UKGBC Future Leaders has now launched its online application process for the next programme, seeking to attract a select group of the best and brightest minds in the built environment to focus on critical issues facing the sector.

The programme commences in January and continues over five months, during which participants develop the skills needed to drive innovation and lead sustainable business practices in their respective organisations.

“As the evidence proves the scale of the planetary emergency we face, it is clear we need a bold new generation of leaders to step forward, equipped with the skills to reimagine and transform our built environment for the better,” said Elfrida Hamilton-Russell, UKGBC’s Head of Learning and Leadership. “If you have the enthusiasm to learn, an openness to new ways of thinking and a desire to challenge the status quo, don’t wait – apply now for Future Leaders 2020.”

Peter Rogers CBE, Co-founder at Lipton Rogers Developments said:“UKGBC’s Future Leaders programme takes high potential individuals from the construction and property industry and encourages their ability to drive positive change. It is a powerful way for businesses to grow their brightest minds to tackle some of the starkest challenges our industry faces.”

Individuals from any discipline within the construction and property industry are encouraged to apply. Applicants are expected to have between five and ten years’ experience in the industry, as well as a drive to challenge business as usual and have a positive impact on the future of our built environment. The deadline for applications is 11 October.

The 2019 Future Leaders programme ended today with an inspiring event showcasing the innovative ideas and leadership journeys of the latest cohort to a room full of current business leaders, line managers and past participants.

Graduates will join the exclusive Future Leadership Alumni Forum, which now boasts over 100 members. The network brings further opportunities for continued professional development along with access to a growing number of thought-leaders across the built environment value chain.

UKGBC Leadership programmes are supported by strategic partners The Crown Estate, Grosvenor, Mitsubishi Electric and Sir Robert McAlpine.
