About TGP Expeditions: Our Why

Since 2009, The GREEN Program (TGP) has been empowering thousands of future sustainability leaders around the globe through experiential education. Now, we’re ready to work with the leaders of today to create a sustainable future, right now. 

Join TGP on our newest adventures, TGP Expeditions, created for professionals and executive leaders. 

Through these global leadership expeditions, participants will work with career and leadership coaches and professional mountaineers to explore and test the parallels between nature and business, leadership, and critical decision making. Participants will also have the opportunity to trek with like-minded professionals, and learn Leave No Trace principles and outdoor ethics, while expanding their physical and mental horizons. Upon completion, participants will receive a verified professional certificate of completion from The GREEN Program, team, and coaches.

Impact & Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

With progress for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the core of our programs, TGP Expeditions – Patagonia is aligned with and supports three key SDGs:

 

  • SDG#3: Good Health & Wellbeing: Research shows the beneficial effects that exposure to the natural world has on health, reducing stress, and promoting healing. Today, policymakers, employers, and healthcare providers are increasingly considering the human need for nature and its relation to our cognitive function and physical health. In a study, researchers found that being in nature reduced feelings of isolation, promoted calm, and lifted mood among patients. (Source: Yale School of the Environment). At the height of a society immersed in screens and technology, TGP Expeditions will expose participants to the raw elements of nature, and provide rich opportunities to reconnect with nature and themselves.
  • SDG #8: Decent Work & Economic Growth: Being outdoors in nature has a dramatic range of benefits for both physical and mental health, and simply makes people happy:
  • SDG #12: Responsible Consumption & Production: Through TGP Expeditions, participants will foster environmental stewardship that will be transferred to their home and workplace environments post-program. Learn No Trace principles in the outdoors can be applied in professional settings and participants will explore how these principles can be integrated into their professional and personal lives at home. In addition, by participating on this program, a portion of program fees are contributed to support underserved students’ global sustainability education with The GREEN Program.
