Grayscale Sustainability is an emerging project that aims to facilitate transitioning to a more sustainable and socially conscious lifestyle by giving people the knowledge and, therefore, the empowerment they need to contribute to any of the different solutions to climate change. We are a not-for-profit led by volunteers in partnership with Youth Climate International.

Grayscale Sustainability requires new members to grow the project and make a more meaningful impact. Applicants do not need to have any sort of experience or being pursuing related studies.
