Turning Green is a global student-led movement devoted to cultivating a healthy, just and thriving planet through education and advocacy around environmentally sustainable and socially responsible choices. We educate, empower, and mobilize a global network of elementary, middle, high school, college and graduate students to become visionary catalysts for sustainable change in their lives, school campuses, and local communities.
WE ARE TURNING GREEN
We work with 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 assess our surroundings, investigate the impacts, and share solutions.
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 choose wisely and lead with purpose and passion. We empower peers to grow our global voice because together we thrive.
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. No is not an option. Inspiration is everything. We dream and do.
WE DREAM AND DO

Project Green Challenge was my entry point to get more deeply involved with Turning Green, to help me find my voice, pursue my career path and empower me as a leader, global citizen and bold change maker. – Alice Beittel
