Project Green Challenge

Project Green Challenge 2012 is a global call to action for high school and college students to transition from conventional to conscious living. It engages youth by uniting them in a commitment to sustain a healthy and just planet. Comprised of 30 challenges in 30 days throughout the month of October, PGC presents participants with daily themes (body, food, labeling, paper, fair trade, energy…) and up to four challenge opportunities at varying levels of engagement. Participants are awarded points based on challenge completion and the top 20 daily submissions receive prizes.
After the 30-day challenge, twelve finalists will be selected based on total points, a final written ‘exam,’ and a video recapping their 30 day transition from conventional to conscious living, Teens Turning Green reports. The finalists will go to San Francisco for Green University, a 3-day eco-summit from 30 November to 2 December 2012. At Green University, these young leaders will be welcomed with a dinner bringing together many eco leaders. For the next two days, they will have the opportunity to work with and learn from each other and an esteemed group of speakers in a weekend of sharing, education, inspiration, and creation of platforms for social change. Natracare has teamed up with youth led non-profit Teens Turning Green in a bid to build a powerful, diverse, and far-reaching movement during the 30 days of October with Project Green Challenge. Almost 1900 students from 48 states, 25 countries, and 392 schools engaged are engaged. More information is available here.
