Turning Green operates under the belief that when students understand that they can directly affect small and large scale change, they are motivated to carry this strong sense of responsibility and stewardship with them for the rest of their lives. This global student initiative provides college and high school students the resources, toolkits, programs and mentoring they need to transition their lives, campuses and communities from conventional to conscious. Through the development of TG Chapters on school campuses, our team works with students on sustainability platforms, supports them in planning impactful projects and engages key leaders and resources on their behalf. TG allows for students to share their visions and strategize together, fostering a generation of collaborative and powerful leaders.
We are young people with a passion to change the world. We speak our minds, and value ethics. We stand for environmentally sustainable and socially responsible choices, practices and communities. We believe that a conscious mindset and thoughtful perspective are critical in today’s society. We remain aware of the effects of our actions on the earth and those around us. We assess our surroundings and investigate the impacts of what we do and think. We choose wisely and lead with purpose and passion. We see individuals as catalysts for the change that our world needs at every level. We learn from innovation and living in the moment. We push for transparency, challenge injustice, and shake up systems that oppress, poison, or fail. We empower peers to grow our global voice because together we thrive. No is not an option. Inspiration is everything. We dream and do.
