How to apply

The Young Leadership Programme is designed for emerging leaders from the research, education, NGOs, governance or business side of the forest sector or a related area (e.g. natural resources management, environmental policy, climate change, energy, bioeconomy), who are working in or with Russia

We welcome applications from young professionals with a few years of work experience, both from Russia as well as other countries working with Russia. The age range is approximately 25-35 years. We aim to have a mix of participants from both research (e.g. PhD students), policy (e.g. young civil servants from Ministries) and practice (young professionals). Up to 20 participants will be selected.
