Paul Heaven appointed UpRising Ambassador

Blue Sky Managing Director, Paul Heaven,  has been appointed an ambassador at UpRising, a leadership programme launched and developed by the Young Foundation to support and train a new generation of public leaders.

Over the course of the programme  (aimed at Britain’s most talented 19-25 year olds), UpRisers receive training from leading journalists, politicians and activists. They also run their own social action projects (previous participants have successfully lobbied for legislation change, started their own social enterprises and been elected to local government).

The programme is designed to create future leaders in politics and public life by developing Britain’s next generation of public and community leaders.  It recruits talented young people from diverse backgrounds and equips them with the life skills, experience and confidence to become the leaders of tomorrow and change their communities for the better.
