The GREEN Program (TGP) is an award-winning experiential educatioon program for young leaders in sustainable development. Created for students, by students, TGP has introduced a new model for education abroad driven by a desire to provide purposeful, hands-on industry exposure at a fraction of the time and cost of semester-long abroad programs.
All of our programs are 8-10 days during winter, spring, and summer break. We attract students and young leaders who are curious about the world and seek opportunities to break out of their comfort zones and stand out amongst their peers as global citizens. Our accredited, short-term model focuses on bringing together students from around the world to unlock doors to governmental, public, and private facility access, private tours, and unique bucket-list experiences. We work with universities around the world to redefine the classroom- from lecture halls to studying the effects of climate change on top of our world's glaciers. Our current program portfolio includes: Iceland - Renewable Energy & Sustainability, Peru: Water Resource Management & Sustainable Practices, Japan: Disaster Mitigation and Nuclear to Renewable Transition, and Nepal: Microgrid Systems for Rural Development.
Come to this session to hear The GREEN Program reflect on our Campus Sustainability Week theme of Greening the Economy, spotlighting the sustainable economic development seen at their program sites alll over the world.
