PGC 2017 FINALISTS

OCTOBER 1-30, 2018

ABOUT

Beginning on October 1, 2018, Project Green Challenge (PGC) seeks to inform, inspire and mobilize high school, college, and grad school students globally. This powerful and diverse call to action features 30 days of environmentally–themed challenges. PGC aims to touch lives, shift mindsets, and equip students with knowledge, resources and mentorship to lead change on campuses and communities worldwide.

Through conscious living, informed consumption, and individual and collective action, PGC participants are challenged to envision and work toward a healthy, just, and thriving planet.

Since launching in 2011, this initiative has engaged over 35,000 students directly and tens of millions indirectly, on more than 4,000 campuses in 50 states and 48 countries.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Each day throughout the month of October, a uniquely themed challenge will be delivered to registered PGC participants by email at 6 am Pacific Time. Each challenge will be live for 24 hours inviting participants to complete actions and upload deliverables to acquire points and prizes. Deliverables include photos, videos, and text uploaded on the PGC site, as well as across TG social platforms; Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube. Twenty incredible prize packages will be awarded daily based on outstanding content.

WHO WE ARE

Turning Green (TG) is a student led global movement devoted to education and advocacy around environmentally sustainable and socially responsible choices for individuals, schools, and communities.

We operate under the belief that when students understand that they can directly affect small and large scale change, they are motivated to carry this sense of responsibility, purpose and stewardship for the rest of their lives.

Our hope is to engage youth in the transition from conventional to conscious living, empowering this generation and mobilizing action to sustain a healthy, just and thriving planet.
