Congratulations to the Finalists of

Project Green Challenge 2021!

Each October, Project Green Challenge informs, inspires and mobilizes 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 — for eleven years and counting.

Every morning, a uniquely themed challenge is delivered to registered participants by email at 6am Pacific Time and live for 24 hours. Students complete actions, upload deliverables, acquire points and heal the planet, submitting photos, videos, creative artwork and written content to the PGC site and across @TurningGreenOrg social platforms. Thoughtfully curated, theme-related prize packages are 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 in November. This in-person event takes place in the San Francisco Bay Area. After presenting their PGC journeys and Climate Action Projects (CAP), all finalists develop and implement those CAPs between December and April, supported with mentorship, tools and resources. Upon completion, one is named PGC Champion and wins a $5,000 Green Award.

Since launching in 2011, PGC has built a movement of young leaders, engaging over 321,510 students directly and tens of millions indirectly on 13,397 campuses, in 50 states and 164 countries. We invite you to join us and together change the world!
