The Turning Green team will select the PGC Class of 2016, which will include up to 16 finalists, from the global pool of challengers to participate in the PGC Challenge Finals. Finalists are selected based on points accrued, number of challenge wins, depth of engagement, quality of work, and a final exam and video recap of their 30 day journey.
The collective of finalists will be flown to San Francisco to attend the PGC 2016 Finals, a four-day eco summit, from November 17-20. There, finalists will share their PGC experiences, collaborate with peers and esteemed eco leaders and work with mentors to develop platforms for social action around key global issues that they can then ground on their campuses.
On the last day of the Finals, each finalist presents their PGC experience before a panel of esteemed judges. The judges will name one finalist as the Project Green Challenge 2016 Champion. The winner receives an extraordinary Grand Prize package valued at more than $12,000 as well as the opportunity to take a leadership role with Turning Green going forward.
The aim of PGC is to mobilize powerful student leaders while supporting them in their efforts to achieve tangible, impactful and sweeping change. Our aim is that they each young leader returns to their campuses informed, inspired and mobilized, and eager to be the change they wish to see in the world!
