OVERVIEW

“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 Author

 

You made it! Today marks the start of the final challenge of Project Green Challenge 2021 and beginning of your next phase as a mobilized agent for change. Over the past month, you have transitioned from conventional you to conscious you — and through your work, shifted the mindsets and practices of friends, family, campuses and communities by championing a lens of sustainability, justice, ethics, intention and positivity. Your individual and collective explorations, discoveries and evolutions have been extraordinary to witness. Now is the time to tell your story.

A Reflection

Due: October 29 at 6am PT

THINK                                                       

Think about your pre-PGC self: the you of less than one month ago. Now think about who you are today. How has your perception of the world shifted? Are you making different choices? In what ways have you engaged those around you? How have YOU changed?

CHALLENGE

We want you to assess how far you’ve come. On Day 1, you took the PGC Entry Survey. Today we ask you to take the PGC Exit Survey to measure the impact that just one month of newfound wisdom, education, inspiration and action can have on any individual. We look forward to seeing your responses!  

Post about what you see as the most significant change on Instagram. Tag @TurningGreenOrg and #PGC2021.
