The GREEN Program enhances the academic life experience of passionate students and empowers them to become socially responsible, innovative, and environmentally conscious leaders of tomorrow.

Our programs bridge the gap between textbook learning and real-time industry experience by taking students behind the scenes of the world’s leading clean energy and sustainability initiatives.

The GREEN Program designs short-term immersion programs in the most exciting places on earth, which are epicenters of innovative technologies as well as bucket-list travel destinations.

We are working alongside the top universities to develop courses and embed the GREEN educational model into existing curriculum. As a Commitment Partner to the Institute of International Education’s Generation Study Abroad initiative, The GREEN Program strives to raise higher education standards, and to increase opportunities for students to study abroad as a part of their undergraduate and graduate studies.

THE STORY

Classes, exams, internships, social life. Students’ schedules are jam-packed, not leaving much time or resources to study abroad for a whole semester or a year.

So The GREEN Program was built to enable even the busiest students to gain unrivaled global perspectives while bridging the gap between “theoretical textbook learning” and real-time industry experience.

The GREEN Team serves as the fundamental catalyst for thousands of students breaking into and transforming the clean energy and sustainability industries. We live our vision, and have embedded our entrepreneurial spirit and fresh perspectives into every facet of our organization.

We believe that students should never have to choose between accepting an internship or attending a study abroad experience during their school breaks; they should be able to do both.
