Green U 2012 Schedule

Green University Schedule

November 30 to December 2, 2012
Marin Country Day School
5221 Paradise Drive
Corte Madera, California

The fourteen PGC 2012 Finalists attending Green U were selected based on total points accumulated, a written final exam, cumulative portfolio, depth of engagement, a final exam, and a reflective video depicting their 30 day transition from conventional to conscious.

Green U will offer the opportunity for finalists to interact with and learn from esteemed eco leaders, present experiences from their 30-day journey, and create social action platforms in collaboration, alongside mentors, leaders, and students. The innovative campaigns developed at Green U will reach an even broader audience, as TTG implements the slate of projects with schools and students nationwide in 2013.

Following presentations on Sunday December 2 by all of the finalists, the PGC 2012 Champion and Runner Up will be selected by a panel of judges.
 Our community is cordially invited to attend.
