beVisioneers is a global fellowship that equips innovators aged 16 to 28 with the training, expert support and resources to bring their planet-positive projects to life.

At the core of our offering is a 12-month hybrid-learning program that focuses on the implementation of each Fellow’s project. Now in its pilot year, beVisioneers aims to train 1000 Fellows annually by 2025. Funded by a donation from Mercedes-Benz, beVisioneers provides the program free of charge to all Fellows and provides basic living and technology support for those who could not otherwise participate. Upon completing the intensive 12-month program, Fellows continue to receive support to scale their projects and develop their leadership skills. By fostering local, regional and global exchange among our ever-growing community of Fellows, mentors and experts, we amplify impact today and help build the environmental leaders of tomorrow.
