Become a Young Leader

Become A Young Leader

As part of the new strategy the Academy has established the Young Leaders Mentoring Program, which will bring together experienced young professionals as part of a mentoring program across the globe.  Read more on our Vision & Strategy here.

One of the many benefits of the Academy’s Young Leaders Mentoring Program is the opportunity to build close relationships within a leading global forum of researchers, practitioners, decision makers and industry and share knowledge and experiences and to be more involved with the Academy’s overall network of highly experienced professionals across many sectors covering the topic of healthy environments.

The Young Leaders Mentoring Program is an outstanding program for professionals across all sectors covering the topic of healthy environments to expand their skills and further their career. The program’s purpose is to develop ‘reverse mentoring’ relationships with new and existing members of the Academy, where both mentor and mentee learn from each other.

The Academy’s Mentoring Committee is committed to creating and supporting a strong community of professionals and to providing the tools and resources required for a successful program.

We are pleased to announce that NEXT ROUND of the Mentoring Program will commence late June 2019. Applications for mentors and mentees in all global regions will open closer to the date.

To participate in the program, you must be a member of the academy. To apply to the mentoring program please complete the Young Leaders Mentoring Program application form.  Or download form HERE and send to

Applications will be reviewed by the Academy’s Mentoring Committee, and the program pairings will formally begin by mid-July 2019.
