APPLY for AFC, Common Purpose Climate Challenge Leadership Programme for Youth

Must read

The Climate Challenge Leadership Programme seeks to strengthen the capacity of a cohort of dynamic emerging leaders who, as they progress in their careers, will build bridges between the global North and South and find new ways to address the environmental crisis.

This Climate Challenge Leadership Programme is a collaboration between Common Purpose and Africa Finance Corporation, AFC.


How will it work?

The programme, running in September and October 2023, comprises two key elements:

Leading Beyond Authority

Participants will be introduced to the Common Purpose thought leadership of ‘Leading Beyond Authority‘ – the ability to cross boundaries and deliver results outside of your direct circle of control. Essential to tackling any complex challenge.

Climate Challenge

Participants will focus on a climate challenge set at the start of the programme.

Through the Common Purpose ‘Innoventure’ process, based on design thinking principles, participants will explore the challenge in a creative and dynamic way. The final stage of this process will be a presentation by participants, to a panel of senior leaders, on their ideas to meet the challenge.
