Starting on October 1, 2016, Project Green Challenge (PGC) will engage high school and college students around the world. This powerful and diverse call to action features 30 days of environmentally-themed challenges, providing students with mentorship, advocacy, and leadership skills. Through conscious living, informed consumption, and individual and collective action, PGC participants are challenged to contribute to a healthy, just, and thriving planet. Since launching in 2011, this initiative has engaged over 25,000 students directly and tens of millions indirectly, on more than 1000 campuses in all 50 states and 45 countries.
Every day throughout the month of October, challenges will be delivered to registered PGC participants by email at 6 am PT. These challenges will be live for 24 hours, inviting participants to complete actions and upload deliverables for points. Twenty prizes will be awarded daily based on thoughtfully curated content. PGC participants share photos, videos, and text on the site, as well as across TG Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube platforms.
