Green Steps is turning 20! Tell us your story

As 2020 draws to a close, we are not only reflecting on this extraordinary year, we are also reflecting on 20 incredible years of Green Steps.

Indeed, the world has changed – a lot – during the past two decades.

But, that makes the Green Steps’ vision to inspire emerging leaders to transform organisations and make the world a more sustainable place to live as strong and relevant as when it first emerged from the vision of a small group of Monash University students at the turn of this century. 

Tell us what Green Steps means to you

As alumni, you are part of that history. There are now more than 1300 of you out there making a positive impact and, with the world heading into the most challenging times, it has never been more important to be a Green Stepper. 

We want to hear your story!

We are inviting all past alumni to share their leadership stories with us via a short video message. You can submit a video message outlining what Green Steps has meant to you and how it has shaped your sustainability and career journey so far. It needs only be 45-60 seconds long (maximum) and may be shared on the MSDI social media channels and website in the lead up to next year’s big celebration event.




A collection of videos will be displayed below.




ONLINE EVENT: Thursday 18 March 2021

Rescripting futures: Provocations & big ideas for a sustainable world
Thursday, 18 March 2021
6.00pm (AEDT)

We invite Green Steps alumni, supporters, and friends to come together on 18 March 2021 for an online celebration of the program’s 20 years.

This celebration event will be a chance to catch up and reflect on past achievements and look ahead to what the upcoming decades may hold. The evening will be asking three multi-disciplinary speakers about what the world in 2040 could look like - and what we can all do to ensure that future. We will be inviting them to share bold visions and bring new futures to bare, imagining possibilities to transform our economic, cultural, energy, and food systems.

Alumni, supporters, and friends of the Green Steps Program are invited to share in this landmark celebration and be inspired by a stimulating discussion and ideas for a sustainable future. In true Green Steps style, we also want to hear from you about your vision of the future, so there will be plenty of time for discussion.
