The GREEN Program: Hawaii- Sustainable Community Food Systems, Energy, & the World Youth Congress

The GREEN Program invites you to join them in the remote volcano archipelago of Hawai’i this June. Hawaiʻi’s sequestered location is a fascinating case study for agriculture and energy independence as it’s own microcosm of the world home to its unique Polynesian culture. As an island-state that imports 90% of their food and exports 80% of their agricultural production, combined with increased efforts of farming infrastructure and technology, the state of Hawai’i is on the mission towards food and energy security.

In conjunction with the 2017 Hawai’i Pilot Program, they will be partnering with the 2017 World Youth Congress. GREEN Hawai’i students will be delegates at the Congress and represent the next generation of sustainability leadership.

Visit the GREEN Program website for more information and how to apply.
