Join the Green Mentors Students' Team

Who can become a Green Mentor?

  • Students studying engineering, health and environmental studies, business, economics, ICT, sciences, or anyone interested in environmental issues – at undergraduate and graduate levels
  • Students can apply as individuals or as a team.  We encourage multi-disciplinary teams to work together
  • We particularly encourage students willing to introduce green practices or products into their family businesses

How it works?

Each year, the B-Hub will announce a green research competition

Each year, 30 student teams will be selected to participate in the competition

Within the competition, student teams with supervision from faculty members will:

  • Identify environmental issues caused by operations of particular businesses (e.g., waste from supermarkets, stone quarrying, chemical manufacturer, farmer, etc.),
  • Research international best practices in solving similar environmental issues
  • Adapt the international practices to the local context – or develop an innovative solution
  • Select local companies willing to adopt the environmental solutions, and
  • Assist these companies in adopting your environmental solution (with support from our team of technical and business mentors)

The results will be presented to a jury who will select the best team based on clear selection criteria

The winning team will be awarded a study visit to an EU country of their choice.

You will be given priority in the selection, even if you don’t have a team

You can still apply.  We will help you join other teams or put together a team.

Yes, if you (i) find local companies willing to adopt your solution and (ii) help these companies in adopting your solution

At least one

An expert with the expertise relevant to the environmental issue you have selected

Yes; we will provide you with an official letter and this will be count towards your volunteer hours – provided that you have completed the assignment satisfactorily with at least one company.

The B-Hub will cover the transportation expenses for visits to the companies’ business sites
