greenlight for girls

The greenlight for girls (“g4g”) foundation is a Brussels-based, international non-profit organization (asbl) founded in November 2011 whose mission is “to promote science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to girls of all ages and backgrounds, around the world.”

To achieve our mission, we carry out free events across Europe and worldwide targeting especially young, school-age girls (11-15yo) with fun, hands-on workshops on science and technology led by volunteer, female role model professionals from STEM sectors.  A key focus of our activities is on improving digital literacy among girls and encouraging them to become more actively involved in designing and building our shared digital future.
