I would describe this as a great opportunity to meet very interesting people from very different backgrounds, students, NGO's, the government, diplomats, designers, industry professionals etc. It offers tremendous insight into how corporates perceive sustainability, how they work and what opportunities are out there in the sustainability space. There are a whole host of invaluable trainings given for free both pertaining to sustainability (LEED, GRI, LCA) and personal development (leadership skills, teamwork, communication, presentation, public speaking, resume development, college application). My experience has been very positive; I would suggest that anyone interested in sustainability should apply.
The Green-teams management creates a positive, nurturing environment which makes it a great workplace. There is plenty of opportunity to network and meet with very interesting individuals, professionals, the press and corporates. You make personal connections with fellow students from very diverse backgrounds and reap those benefits. With sustainability being so important for our future,
thus is a wonderful opportunity to learn, to observe and to work at making a difference.
I enjoyed the ability we were given to develop ourselves as professionals. I enjoyed that we were able to go into meetings, with our corporate partners and as an entire group, and we were looked upon as leaders within the field of sustainability.
I would highly recommend this program to students who question how what they're learning in the classroom fits in to the bigger picture.
I am much more passionate about my future career and the changes I hope to make in this world
The quality of the trainings we participated in couldn't have been better.
This has been an eye opening opportunity about sustainability and our role in maintaining the life of our planet
It was great getting to work with different individuals with different majors and expertise.
With this program, you have forever changed my life and the life of everyone involved.
