APPLY TODAY to join a training for students, activists, artists, entrepreneurs, educators, organizers, and young leaders who are committed to transforming our world at the intersection of environmental sustainability, social justice, and human thriving.


We are living in a critical moment in history, facing systemic challenges like no other generation before and a profound opportunity to remake our world.
