About Greenlight

We are looking for students who want to make a difference.  This year’s theme, Changemaker 2020, is a behavioral change challenge.  There are many ways to tackle environmental problems and we need many solutions to drive change. We hope students and faculty from all subjects will get involved.

Who should participate?

Students who care about the environment, want to make a difference, and want to experience leadership, teamwork, public speaking, and drive to create something to use in a real-world experience. These are key skills to learn, apply, and add to a college application.

How?

Students may develop any project to create awareness, inspire or otherwise cause change, and use this “tool” to accomplish behavior change by May.

  • Policy/Government – drive change with a new rule
  • Marketing/Film/Art/Photography — inspire change with a message
  • Science/Tech/Entrepreneurship – help people change with an invention/solution
  • Writing/Tech – instruct and make it easier to change with resources or events
  • Marketing – promote change or promote a product that causes change
  • Activism – drive change through grassroots organizing

Bedford 2020 encourages teamwork and multi-disciplinary approaches to tackle problems in our community. We offer great resources on our website, at workshops, and in the way of seed-funding, community expert mentors, and public relations outreach. To see more resources for students, please visit the Greenlight Toolkit.
