Green Passion

Find your passion

Our program attracts students who are curious about the world and seek opportunities to adventure, break out of their comfort zone, and stand out among their peers as global citizens. We exist to use the world as our classroom in order to give meaning and purpose to education, adventure, and life.

“What really stays with me is knowing and rediscovering my passion for sustainability and believing in myself.” 

– Rashmi S., U of Toronto

Green Comfort Zone

Redefine your comfort zone

The interdisciplinary nature of The GREEN Program empowers our students to grasp creative leadership, teamwork, personal growth, and to step outside their comfort zones.

“[GREEN] gives you the ability to surprise yourself and others with insatiable curiosity and equips you with the tools to keep doing so after the program.”

– Peter VF., U of Illinois 

Green Career

Student-driven Capstone Projects are framed as entrepreneurial ventures catered to students’ interests and academic pursuits. Capstone Projects are presented to faculty and industry professionals at the end of every program.

“The Capstone Project will reveal your potential and make you realize that you can change the world.”
