Who are the next generation’s environmental leaders?
Is there a leadership gap?
Are we prepared to tackle the environmental problems of today and tomorrow?
The Young Conservation Professionals Leadership Program is inviting leaders in the field, funders, Executive Directors, CAOs, program alumni, managers of alumni past and present, and supporters of the program to three morning meetings this fall – “Regional Roundtables” – to discuss leadership in the sector and a vision for developing the sector’s future leaders.
2014 Regional Roundtables “Environmental Leadership|Next Generation”
Wednesday, Oct. 8, 9:30-11:30AM – Sustainability Network, Toronto
Wednesday, Oct. 15, 9:30-11:30AM – University of Guelph, Guelph

For 10 years, the Young Conservation Professionals (YCP) Leadership Program, based at the University of Guelph and generously supported by the Arthur D. Latornell Endowment Fund, has developed the leadership and management skills of early-career professionals in Ontario’s environmental sector. Since 2005, 187 professionals from 85 different government agencies and ENGOs in Ontario, including 23 of the 36 Conservation Authorities, have graduated from YCP.
The meetings will focus on questions such as:
1. What does the sector need to develop the next generation of leaders?
2. Who are the future leaders and how can we identify them?
3. What actions will have the greatest impact?
