Have you heard about Greening Forward? It’s REMARKABLE!...one of the largest youth-led environmental action non-profit organizations that works to Establish, Engage and Empower a youth-driven global movement of people to create social and environmental change.
Are you 5-25 years old? Greening Forward can provide you with leadership training, resources and network-building opportunities via mentorships, grants and an annual International Young Environmentalists Youth Summit (this year scheduled for New York, May 13-14, 2016). This year’s summit sessions and workshops will address topics including how to create diverse and inclusive projects, using media to share environmental campaigns and how to engage elected officials.
Are you older than 25-years old? Greening Forward can inspire you to better leverage youth engagement and empower your organization by embracing youth leadership in decision-making and program design.
Charles Orgbon III was 12-years old when he founded Greening Forward. He’s now a junior attending the University of Georgia and is studying Environmental Economics and Management…all the while still serving as Greening Forward’s CEO.
…Because he really doesn’t have enough to do, Charles is on-hand this week to host our eePro discussion board and answer any questions you might have about his organization, their programs, his perspective on the Oscars, favorite movies, yada yada…
…So shout out any questions, comments, worldly observations you might have between now and next Monday, March 14, to tap into Charles’ brain and expertise! (He’ll be logging in once a day to see what questions and comments may be tossed his way.)
Hi Charles! Thanks for hosting this discussion thread this week! First kick-off question for ya, buddy…What’s one success story (or web link) that you’d like to share demonstrating Greening Forward’s success in empowering young folks to diversify the environmental movement?
