Future Green Leaders

We’re all about bringing a fresh perspective to the sustainable future of the built environment and it’s the next generations who’ll be implementing and living the changes these new perspectives bring.

Our Future Green Leader (FGL) program makes our learning opportunities more accessible to professionals under 32, best of all it’s free to join. To help kickstart their sustainability career, we give our FGLs unique access to industry leaders and experts, arming them with the skills and networks to drive meaningful change in their own organisations.

Upcoming Future Green Leader events

If you are under 32 and passionate about the future of sustainable buildings, cities and communities, come and join other Future Green Leaders for our End of Year Celebration Drinks.

The evening will be an opportunity to connect with your fellow peers over drinks and light snacks and to discuss how you can be part of the sustainable transformation of our built environment.
