“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, Author
Can you believe that there is only one day left of your Project Green Challenge 30-day experience?. You will soon be at the start of your next phase as a mobilized agent of change. Over the past month, you have transitioned from conventional to conscious — 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, evolutions, and advocacy have been extraordinary to witness. We now want to hear your story!
Before you dive into today’s Challenge, here are all of the remaining materials due tomorrow (October 30) and Monday (October 31), so that you have it clearly in one place. Note that if you intend to apply for the finals, you must complete all four levels of this Day 29 Challenge: Green, Greener, Greenest and Extra Credit. As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to our team at email@example.com.

Think about your pre-PGC self, the you of less than a mere one month ago. Now think about who you are today. How have your perceptions of the world shifted? Are you making different choices? In what ways have you engaged those around you? Have you changed? If so, please share!
We want you to assess how far you’ve come on your PGC journey. On Day 1, you took the PGC Entry Survey. Today, we ask you to take the PGC Exit Survey to measure the impact that 30 days of newfound wisdom, education, inspiration and action can have on one individual. We look forward to seeing your responses!
Post on Instagram about the most significant change you see in yourself as a result of PGC. Use any medium or visuals you wish. Tag @TurningGreenOrg and #PGC2022.
