TogetherGreen Conservation Leadership Program
“The TogetherGreen Conservation Leadership Program invests in promising and proven leaders who are committed to empowering others and to creating positive environmental change in their communities and organizations. Each TogetherGreen Fellow will receive a $10,000 grant to support an innovative Conservation Action Project, professional development opportunities, and an opportunity to network with a cadre of committed leaders.
In 2011, up to 40 Fellows will be selected to participate in this 18-month-long program.
All Fellows will be required to conduct a Conservation Action Project to help address one or more of the following TogetherGreen conservation goals:
• Habitat/Land: Protect habitat and species in targeted landscapes
• Water: Protect water resources by improving water quality and water supply for all living things
• Energy: Reduce the threat of greenhouse gas emissions by reducing energy use and/or improving energy efficiency
To achieve these goals, Conservation Action Projects should support efforts to engage new and diverse audiences in conservation action.
TogetherGreen Fellows will come from diverse backgrounds and disciplines, but share a commitment to learning and leading—using their knowledge, skills, and motivation to engage others in conservation action and achieve results. TogetherGreen is committed to recruiting a diverse group of Fellows that represents a range of ethnicities, geographies, experiences, and cultural influences.”
