What is the YSL Programme?

It is undoubtedly an exciting and challenging time in the world with the movements behind our global transition to a low carbon, sustainable future where all people thrive. The Young Sustainability Leaders (YSL) Programme provides a catalyst for the ‘leaders of tomorrow’ to mature and flourish in response to the challenges of the coming decades.

The YSL Programme links passionate students with mentors from all disciplines in industry, government, not-for-profit and the start-up community, and more. The program provides professional development opportunities and the chance to interact with some of the world’s leading figures in sustainability. It assists students' own understandings of sustainability and contributes to their professional development through mentor catch-ups, workshops and community engagement projects.

The Programme has been nationally and internationally recognised in the university it began at and awarded the Australasian Green Gown award for Student Engagement in 2017 and a top three finalist globally.
