Welcome to

Project Green Challenge 2021!

All throughout this month of October, Project Green Challenge will inform, inspire and mobilize high school, college, and graduate students worldwide around climate action, public health, sustainability, social justice and advocacy. This powerful and diverse call to action features 30 days of environmentally–themed challenges to touch lives, shift mindsets, and equip students with knowledge, resources and mentorship to lead change on campuses and in communities.

Through conscious living, informed consumption, and individual and collective action, PGC participants are challenged to envision and work toward the healthy, just, resilient future in which they can thrive.

Each day of October, a uniquely themed challenge will be delivered to registered participants by email at 6 am Pacific Time. Each challenge will be live for 24 hours, inviting students to complete actions, upload deliverables, acquire points and heal the planet. Deliverables include photos, videos, creative artwork and written content uploaded to the PGC site and across @TurningGreenOrg social platforms. Thoughtfully curated, theme-related prize packages will be awarded daily for outstanding submissions.

At the end of the 30 days, up to 16 PGC Finalists will be selected to join Turning Green for a four-day eco summit from November 18 – 22, 2021. This in-person event will take place in San Francisco (pending Covid). One finalist will be named PGC 2021 Champion and win a $5,000 Green Award based on completing a Climate Action Project, which all Finalists will develop and implement.

Since launching in 2011, PGC has built a movement of young leaders, engaging over 290,058 students directly and tens of millions indirectly on 12,175 campuses, in 50 states and 118 countries. We invite you to join us and together change the world!
