Do you have an idea to catalyze green growth in your community?

Calling on youth between the ages of 17 and 35!

If you have a great idea to generate green growth in your community, the Global Green Growth Institute, Student Energy and Youth Climate Lab invite you to apply to participate in Greenpreneurs.

Form a small team and submit your idea for a solution that positively impacts the future of sustainable energy; water and sanitation; sustainable landscapes (forestry and agriculture); or green city development.

Fifteen selected teams will take part in a free twelve-week virtual accelerator course with weekly learning modules that include webinars and tasks as well as coaching from mentors and subject matter experts that will support you to build your idea into a validated business plan.

The program will culminate in a business competition, for some teams winning a trip to Seoul, South Korea to visit the GGGI Head Office, small-scale project funding and conference bursaries to the International Student Energy Conference in 2021.

June 10 — Aug 11 Weekly modules

Aug 12 — Aug 25 Business competition
