The GenG Project featured a proposal to complement current educational efforts by bridging young scholars to careers in the booming green economy. Each Collaboratory presented to a live audience and a panel of experts. The GenG Team gained valuable connections and feedback.
The GenG Curriculum
The GenG Curriculum inspires young scholars through sustainability curricula delivered in a creative and interactive way. The Curriculum defines the abstract concepts of sustainability and breaks down those concepts in terms scholars can embrace and understand.
- 10 week curriculum
- 2 hours a week
- Project based learning
The GenG Workshop
The GenG Workshops are a single day, intensive experiential learning platform designed to help students experience aspects of a green career. From rapid prototypes to converting a door into a bench. The GenG Workshops are hands-on and complement the GenG Curriculum.
The GenG Mentorship
The GenG Mentorship is a 1:1 session with GenG Scholars to empower them to be leaders for positive social impact and to provide them a means of expanding their social capital and connections in the booming green economy. By connecting a role model from the local green economy at a critical age of student development, The GenG Project will empower a new generation of scholars to enter the low carbon economy.
