The Green Team
Empowering Sustainable Changemakers
We are a student initiative of the Technical University of Munich
Who are we?
Many people see the immense challenges that the world is facing today, and this drives them to leave a positive impact in their communities and on the world. But often we feel limited by a lack of opportunity, skills, networks, or connections to take meaningful action. This is the gap The Green Team wants to bridge by fulfilling our mission to empower students to be changemakers in sustainability. Our vision is to support students of today as they become future leaders and enablers of a sustainable world.
The Green Team aims to emphasise “empowerment” each time, to make sure our future change-makers are given sufficient support to do what they were destined to do – make our world a better place.
Get to know our projects
The Student Talks explore empowerment through knowledge transfer. The aim is to create an environment, where students involved in different areas of environmental, social or economic sustainability are given support, platform and necessary skills to meaningfully communicate their knowledge, thoughts, and experiences. At the same time, the listeners are inspired by fellow students to take a leap and pursue what they believe in, and also gain knowledge and discuss topics they are interested in.
Meet–ups to discuss books on sustainability related topics. Participants openly exchange ideas and opinions, explore new information, engage in analytical thinking, and generative discussions.
To see and experience sustainability initiatives in action, field trips facilitate immersive learning excursions that also encourage connections and expanded student to workforce networks
Facilitated workshops support students as they develop their sustainability related thesis ideas in a collaborative space. The project provides guidance, resources, and feedback to support students.
