While Doing Public Service

The purpose of this program is to enable fellows to use and expand Earth5R's extraordinary resources to tackle complex environmental problems. The Earth5R fellows learn by working with Earth5R's global network that includes various intergovernmental panels like UN Organisations, OECD, Embassies and Global Governments to create knowledge while strengthening connections across the environment and sustainability disciplines.


For Real Problems

Earth5R exposes the fellows to a diverse set of subjects and perspectives, related to Climate Change and Sustainable Development, delivered by some of the finest teachers and practitioners from around the world.

The Fellows receive project-based learning to develop their environmental leadership and sustainable career goals.

The fellowship program includes training, working and mentoring components where the fellow will participate in several projects and workshops that build leadership and problem-solving skills.

There are 4 prime pieces involved in helping the fellows develop their Real Project:

Hands-on work experience

This is made possible by working with our grass-root organization on sustainable socio-economic environmental issues.


Apply the Solutions with a Business Model

Earth5R has been building and nurturing one of the largest global networks of change-makers. More than 50,000 citizens are involved in our programs across 53 countries who are committed to serving their communities and local ecosystems.

At Earth5R, our core belief is that young people can transform the planet as actors in the achievement of sustainable development. This is why we work to establish programs to tackle the many specific issues facing our planet.

After the selection process, Earth5R fellows are introduced to a year-long fellowship, where every member is committed to championing a social entrepreneurship based ecosystem. We encourage Earth5R fellows to take ownership of the community network and we mentor them to solve issues that affect the planet and its people using business-centric solutions.


To Develop International Partnerships

We have reached 1.2 million beneficiaries with our sustainability programs and education and attracted major partners like:
-United Nations Technology Innovation Labs
-Paris Peace Forum
-United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
-Global Governments

The Earth5R Fellowship is the only global Fellowship program specifically designed to develop global change-makers who work on live projects based on the circular economy model. These projects are run in partnership with United Nations Organisations and Global Governments.

Our Fellowship Program is designed to give fellows the tools and skills they need to work together across boundaries to address the big challenges the world is facing.

The Fellowship Program is action-driven, promotes experiential learning by supporting the fellows’ own initiatives and projects, and is designed for lifelong engagement.

This is an outstanding project! The fact that the Earth5R program is completely citizen-driven makes it a lot more sustainable and effective. We would like to have this program in every country!

Exceptional work by the Earth5R team. The women empowerment model that generates livelihood while solving the plastic waste problem is a great example of a circular economy in action.
