Project Green Challenge

Project Green Challenge 2012

What: Project Green Challenge is a 30-day eco lifestyle challenge engaging over 2,600 high school and college students on 510 campuses across the country to transition from conventional to conscious living.

Who: Teens Turning Green is a student led movement devoted to education and advocacy around environmentally sustainable and socially responsible choices for individuals, schools, and communities. TTG seeks to engage youth in the transition from conventional to conscious, empowering the next generation and mobilizing action to sustain our earth. The Drexel Sierra Student Coalition is leading Drexel’s participation in the Challenge.

Why: The Challenge strives to raise awareness about conscious living, informed consumption, and the collective impact of each of our actions. With the guidance of eco experts, industry leaders, and the PGC Green Guide, participants discover how fun, simple, and high impact eco living can be.

How: Throughout October, four daily green challenges will be outlined on the Project Green Challenge website and in an e-mail delivered to participants each morning. With each challenge will come a set of tasks and deliverables that participants will be asked to complete and upload. Each participant must start with the Green Challenge and then work their way through. The further you delve into the challenges, the more points you’ll accrue and the opportunity to win prizes. There’s even an awesome grand prize if you collect the most points!

The challenges and all supporting resources, tips, facts, green glossary, and Green Guide remain available for viewing and further learning!

When: The whole month of October!
