At Turning Green, we work at the elementary, high school, and college level to provide students with the education, advocacy skills and leadership opportunities to take action in support of a more responsible economy, a healthy food system, and mobilize others to do the same. We aim to inform today’s youth to reshape habits, actions, and consumption patterns, empower them to be advocates for change in their homes, schools and communities and mobilize the leaders of the future, uniting them with diverse stakeholders and mentors.
Turning Green Programs
- Project Green Challenge – A 30-day global initiative in October that inspires high school and college students to transition their lives from conventional to conscious.
- PGC Finals – An eco summit in November bringing together PGC Finalists, eco leaders and mentors to learn, develop campus initiatives, and share their 30-day PGC journeys.
- Conscious College Road Tour – A national tour of colleges & universities to give students an experiential opportunity to learn about conscious living, informed consumption, individual and collective action with the goal of creating an impactful campus sustainability initiative.
This unprecedented program works to shift the paradigm around school food service by cultivating a local, ecological food system and building nutrition literacy into school meals. Our staff works with schools and districts to transition food from pre-packaged, processed, heat-and-serve to chef-cooked meals, based on five foundational attributes – fresh, local, organic, seasonal, non-GMO, prepared in on-site, zero waste kitchens.
Each year we select and engage a powerful and committed group of next generation leaders to mentor and empower, and to prompt them to be the change they wish to see in the world. This program is year round and funded through grants and donations.
