The One Million Leaders (OML) program is a flagship program of NELIS – Next Leaders’ Initiative for Sustainability. It is initiated in four regions of the world: Africa, Asia, Latin America and MENA (Middle East & North Africa). The aim is to train and empower one million nexgen leaders and social innovators in each of the regions of the world by 2030.
The One Million Leaders Asia (OMLAS) program annually recruits young Asian talents who are awarded an OMLAS Fellowship. They receive a two-month intensive training in aspects such as Transformative Leadership, Sustainability, Social Innovation, and Social Entrepreneurship. They will empower younger leaders in their communities and do social projects in a yearlong journey of Fellowship.
After graduating from the Fellowship Program, fellows can join the OMLAS Alumni community and continue to work with other young leaders in Asia, Africa, Latin America and MENA.
The OMLAS Fellowship aims to empower one million next generation sustainability leaders in Asia by 2030.
