This program is a game-changing opportunity for scholars and practitioners eager to take up the mantle of environmental leadership and stewardship for the rising generation.
"My experience suggests that environmental issues are linked inextricably with many other challenges facing communities worldwide, such as conflict, human rights violations, and poverty. The Bacon Environmental Leadership Fellowship—focused on environment, but within the broader CPL context—is exactly the right mix to empower me to foster impact on major environmental challenges."
