WHY Image 1 STUDENTS 25p


The GREEN Program enables even the busiest students to gain unrivaled global leadership experiences while bridging the gap between “theoretical textbook learning” and real-time industry insight. The GREEN Alumni Network is comprised of more than 1,000 student leaders from 57+ countries, and is a perfect platform to gain industry insights and career opportunities.



As a parent, you care about your son or daughter’s success both in school and post graduation. Our attention to detail, personal insights and stellar safety record will make this an easy and comfortable journey for students as well as their parents.



Most universities provide a challenging academic curriculum, based on traditional textbook learning. The GREEN Program allows universities to enhance their educational offerings by supporting experiential learning opportunities for their students.



Students are facing one of the toughest job markets upon graduation. However, our GREEN Alumni come to interviews armed with hands-on experience, global perspectives and industry insights that continuously surprise and dazzle employers.

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.
