Collaborate and Celebrate in the 3rd Annual Earth Week Summit: Teams and Trees, April 17 – 24, 2021
Green Team Academy is proud to present the 3rd Annual Online Earth Week Summit. This free event features a full week of live online workshops and happy hours, plus a month-long pop-up networking group open to the public.
“Over the past several decades, humankind has failed at job #1, which is taking care of the planet that sustains us,” said Joan Gregerson, Summit Organizer and Founder of Green Team Academy. “
“Too many people feel that there’s nothing they can do, especially with added constraints of social distancing. In the Earth Week Summit, we’re bringing people together virtually to share strategies that are working on the ground right now even during the pandemic.”
“This year’s theme of Teams and Trees gives attendees a way to make a long-term impact by starting a team in their communities and an immediate impact by supporting the youth-led Mabinju team in Kenya,” said Gregerson.
Summit attendees will discover how to take an idea and go from passion to action in 90 days by starting or growing a team. The Summit will showcase the results of the award-winning teams from the 2020 International Climate Action Challenge. Attendees will also learn how to apply to be part of the 2021 International Climate
Attendees can also be part of the 1,000-tree challenge, helping the Mabinju Power House Youth Group in Kenya plant 1,000 trees.
“We chose to partner with the Mabinju team because of their stellar results of planting 30,000 trees during our 90-day challenge,” said Gregerson. During the challenge, the team documented their tree nursery and how they distributed trees and planted them at schools and in villages. The Mabinju team focuses on training youth and women.
Green Team Academy is partnering with EARTHDAY.ORG and dozens of other partners to bring an exciting, impactful event to all ages for celebrating the 51st anniversary of Earth Day.
“We’re on a mission to empower regular people to step up and be the change they wish to see,” said Gregerson.
Special features of the event include:
- Live workshops with Joan Gregerson, author of Climate Action Challenge: A Proven Plan for Launching Your Eco-Initiative in 90 Days
- 1,000-tree challenge
- Virtual happy hours for connecting and collaborating in real time.
