Green Box is a youth-driven engagement lab nurturing sustainability leadership in Pakistan. We are developing a community of young people for environmental action and accountability. We are doing this through tools, practical experience, and network to drive change nation-wide.
We wish to enable young people become a key part of the solution to environmental challenges in Pakistan
To emerge as a living lab which is developing a youth-centred open-innovation ecosystem for environmental action
To enable 10,000 young people to become powerful engines of environmental action and accountability for local sustainable development in Pakistan by 2030
We combine three innovative strategies to help young people forge their own sustainable futures, leveraging opportunities for environmental action and becoming leaders who can positively impact community systems:
A simulation-based curriculum to engage tertiary level students across Pakistan to receive approximately 100 credit hours of training on sustainability leadership skills. Moreover, in order to facilitate the application of this learning in real, local community settings students can choose to customize their program by selecting one of the four practicum schemes offered including Environmental Sustainability’s nexus with Health, Green Technologies, Governance & Leadership and Social Innovation.
A keyspace for young people to access tools and resources to co-develop evidence-based, innovative capstone projects addressing local environmental sustainability challenges.
A technology-based accountability initiative to crowdsource data to hold community systems, policymakers and community members accountable for their actions impacting the environment.
