“I do not allow myself to be overcome by hopelessness, no matter how tough the situation. I believe that if you just do your little bit without thinking of the bigness of what you stand against,if you turn to the enlargement of your own capacities, just that itself creates new potential.” ~ Vandana Shiva, Environmentalist, Scholar, and Anti-globalization Author
YOU MADE IT. Today marks the final challenge of #PGC 2018, and the start of your next phase as a mobilized agent for change. Over the past 30 days, you have transitioned from conventional YOU to conscious YOU and through that, you have changed the mindsets of your friends,family, campuses, and communities by helping them see through a lens of green, one with intention and positive outcomes. YOU are a changemaker and your transformation has been extraordinary to witness.
But your quest to change the world is only just beginning. Where will you go from here? What will you take with you from this experience? For some, your next big step will be the PGC Finals. Others may work with with Turning Green as Campus Reps, Conscious College Road Tour hosts, Interns or other opportunities. How will you continue to live a life of intention and what will your role be in healing our planet? These are questions to contemplate as you journey forward.
Before you get started on making even bigger waves, we want to thank you for your dedication, magnificent work, creativity, passion, and perseverance over this past month. We know what it takes and to each of you so much gratitude for commiting to the work. Thank you for refusing to accept status quo, for opening yourself to the possibilities of cultivating a healthy and just planet, and for being willing to change the course of our future.
You are our hope, and after this month, we can say with great certainty that our future is bright indeed.
The TG Team
Think about yourself pre-PGC, just 30 days ago, and then think about who you are today. How has your perception of the world shifted? Are you making different choices? How have you engaged those around you? How have you changed?
We want you to assess just how far you’ve come. On Day 1 you took the PGC Entry Survey. Now we are asking you to take the PGC Exit Survey to assess the impact that 30 days of new found wisdom can have on an individual, particularly those who are ready to shift the paradigm.
Please upload a PDF document telling us that you’ve completed the survey. Please include your name (or team name), username, email address, and school.
