The Global GREEN Ambassador Program

The Global GREEN Ambassador Program is an all-star cohort of GREEN alumni committed to education, sustainability, and adventure. Ambassadors are forward-thinking alumni inspired to stay active in the GREEN community and eager to share The GREEN Program philosophy and mission on their campuses and in their communities. We competitively select a class of GREEN Ambassadors to be our liaisons on campuses across the world each semester.
