Apply to the 7 month leadership program that gives young adults the skills and tools needed to become effective leaders in movements for social and environmental change.

Do you believe that global and local issues are connected?
Do you feel that our economic system is focused on profit at the expense of people and the planet?
The application deadline for Next Up BC is September 19, 2014. The program runs between October 2014 and May 2015. Visit: http://www.nextup.ca/how-to-apply/ for more information.
Next Up is co-hosted in BC with Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA).
Next Up was created by a community of people who wanted to help emerging leaders develop new and better skills, smarts and ideas. The program is intense. Over seven months, we’ll dive into a number of topics and disciplines, combining theory, practice, deep thinking, and hard skills. We’ll look at some of the most pressing Canadian policy issues, with a focus this year on climate change. We will consider where “progressive” thinking is on these issues and how to solve them. We’ll look at how change is made in society. And we’ll meet some of the most innovative change-makers in the province — from the non-profit, labour, business and public sectors — who are working for a better world.
