Every Bootcamp is delivered in an interactive fully-virtual environment.

These are intensive, team-based experiential learning bootcamps. We ask all participants to commit to full participation for the dates of the bootcamp they are accepted into to ensure the best experience for everyone.

What is our Global Sustainability Project Bootcamp?



During our intensive virtual bootcamps, students from across disciplines and higher education institutions work together to tackle a challenge faced by a real community somewhere across the world. All our bootcamps are based on the highly-acclaimed How to Change the World course at University College London (UCL), which runs annually for over 1000 students.

How will gaining sustainability skills support your career?

Since 2017, there has been a 36-fold increase in companies setting sustainability targets. The bad news? Only 17% of these companies say they have employees with the skills they need to start even making progress towards reaching these targets. The good news? Millions of jobs are being created specifically to focus on nature-positive solutions.

You have the passion and drive to tackle sustainability challenges but you need experiential opportunities that provide the skills and hands-on experience that companies are looking for. Our bootcamps equip you with these mindsets, frameworks and skills through practical, real-world experience.


Careers Nights & Experiential Prizes

Careers Nights
for every student

Every participant who completes one of our Bootcamps gets exclusive access to our Careers Nights.

During every Careers Nights, participants have a series of private small-group discussions with sustainability leaders and professionals from a diverse range of companies and organisations. These discussions provide opportunities to get career advice, build a professional network, and even find unique internship and job opportunities.
