CANCELLED – 2020 Beahrs Environmental Leadership Program




Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 health crisis, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Beahrs Environmental Leadership Program. We came to this decision in response to the recommendations of local, national, and international public health authorities. The health and safety of our community and the world were first and foremost in our decision to cancel. While we are saddened that we are unable to hold the program this year, we understand that our actions can have serious effects in the worldwide fight against this pandemic, and we strive to take purposeful action during this time of crisis.

As of now, we are developing plans in hopes of holding the Beahrs Environmental Leadership Program in Summer of 2021. We would like to thank the many applicants who put so much hard work into their applications this year, the sponsors and donors for continually supporting the program over the past 20 years, the ELP alumni network for providing so many great examples of how the ELP cohort can change the world, and to the many other supporters both here and around the world who believe in the ELP. 

We hope that the entire Beahrs ELP community is staying safe and well during this uncertain time. Should you need anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Beahrs ELP Team. More updates regarding the next program will be available in the following months.




The Beahrs Environmental Leadership Program (Beahrs ELP) at the University of California, Berkeley is a rigorous, unique learning experience that transforms mid-career environmental professionals into exceptional leaders.

Through exposure to innovative approaches and case studies, ELP participants develop the skills necessary to tackle dynamic and complex environmental issues.

This three-week intensive interdisciplinary training includes workshops taught by award-winning Berkeley faculty members from the College of Natural Resources, Haas School of Business, and School of Environmental Design, as well as the departments of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management and Agricultural and Resource Economics. In addition, the instructor team includes prominent experts in the areas of green finance, systems leadership, communications, project management, conflict resolution, and consensus building.

We shape powerful leaders by combining cutting-edge thinking with real-world approaches.

Upon completion, participants in the Beahrs ELP join an alumni network comprising of 702 members from over 114 countries.
