Green University 2012


Green University is the culmination of PGC 2012, a three day eco summit hosted in Marin County, California from November 30-December 2. Fourteen finalists were selected from high school and college participants around the world. Sign ups included 2600+ students, representing 464 campuses, in 49 states, and 33 countries

The finalists will be flown to San Francisco for the summit, to learn from esteemed eco leaders, and work together with mentors to create platforms for social action. These platforms will be implemented by Teens Turning Green in 2013.


Finalists will each make a presentation reflecting on their 30 day PGC journey to a panel of judges who will select the Project Green Challenge 2012 Champion.
