Not only do our students get to experience a life-changing trip, we also place them on a path to career fulfillment in sustainability & give them a group to call family. These are their stories...
"Taking classes at Reykjavik University while being immersed in nature helped solidify my thoughts of an ideal career path post graduation."
"I want to help as many people as possible through education. I want to inspire people and help them know that they can do anything."
"The GREEN program was the fastest 10 days of my life, but I learned more about myself and the environment than I did through four years of my undergraduate career."
"My resume summarizes all of the experiences I've had, but it doesn't share my passion and dedication to whatever I choose to pursue. I'm extraordinarily energetic and have a bright, positive outlook that is contagious and makes everyday challenges enjoyable."
"I want to leave our earth in better shape than I came into it. I want to make sure that my kids and grandkids and great-grandkids can live in this beautiful world without fear of losing the very things that make it so beautiful."
"I want to be an advocate for not only The GREEN Program, but also the environment and how we can use all areas of study to conserve and better the world we live in today."
"The GREEN Program had a large focus on a topic I was interested in and wanted to learn more about, and I had the opportunity to learn about sustainability in an immersive environment."
"I hope to lead by example in living the life that is right for me on my path, and to inspire others to walk their own path."
I’m a critical thinker and problem solver. I’m a hard worker that tries to understand perspectives from all different angles.
"I hope to expand people's knowledge about the the unique programs TGP has to offer and hopefully give people an outlet to explore their interests in this field in a hands on setting rather than just learning about it in a classroom setting."
"This program has completely shifted my focus to making the world cleaner and more sustainable."
"Everything we did was so hands-on and there was a clear, relevant purpose for everything we learned. Best decision ever!"
"My experience with TGP in Iceland was packed full of stunning landscapes, unique adventures and brilliant people."
"Before The GREEN Program, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do in life. This program inspired me to pursue a path in sustainable energy, specifically hydro electric."
"The site of Iceland is like no other, and the receding glaciers I’ve now seen in person serve as the ultimate reminder as to why I continue to fight for our islands"
"I couldn’t have imagined a better way to learn about renewable energy, experience Iceland, try new things and meet new people all in one week!"
"I feel more inspired from my courses at Iceland School of Energy now knowing that science can change and help the world."
"I want to leave the world more sustainable and less polluted than I found it."
"I want to bring change to the world of conservation and sustainability by changing the way we look at our relationship with nature and the planet."
