UC Berkeley’s Environmental Leadership Summer Certificate Course for Professionals
About the Programme
The Beahrs Environmental Leadership Program (ELP) at the University of California, Berkeley, offers a unique learning opportunity for mid-career practitioners and decision-makers to broaden their knowledge and perspectives on environmental and natural resource science, policy, management, and leadership. Through exposure to innovative sustainability approaches and dialogue, ELP participants develop the tools and skills necessary to meet environmental goals that also reduce poverty and social conflict. Established in August 2000 with seed funding from UC Berkeley alumni Carolyn and Richard Beahrs, the ELP offers an annual three-week summer certificate course at UC Berkeley, and coordinates the Berkeley ELP Alumni Network with 670 members from over 110 countries. The ELP also supports post-training conservation and sustainable development collaborative projects with alumni, their organizations, and the UC Berkeley community of faculty, staff, and students.
