G3 Local 2030 Islands Network Conservation Corps

G3 Local2030 Islands Network Conservation Corps

Along with the Local2030 Islands Network, Guam Green Growth launched the newest spinoff of the successful Conservation Corps program. 

The Guam Green Growth Local2030 Islands Network Conservation Corps features 10 selected members who all reside in the University of Guam Residence Halls. 

The G3 Local2030 Conservation Corps is strategically tailored to empower UOG dorm residents from the Federated States of Micronesia, Republic of Palau, Republic of the Marshall Islands and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands with the skills and knowledge for the emerging green economy, while addressing pressing environmental concerns.  

These focus areas include agriculture, aquaculture, island beautification, invasive species mitigation, reforestation, circular economy practices, ocean conservation, and harnessing renewable energy. In addition, the inaugural cohort will also participate in activities that support civic engagement and leadership. 


This project is made possible through funding administered by the National Sea Grant Program. 


The University of Guam Center for Island Sustainability and Sea Grant launches the new regional-focused G3 Local2030 Islands Network Conservation Corps at the UOG Residence Halls on Friday, September 1. The ten new G3 Local 2030 Conservation Corps are Sirena Braiel (Chuuk), Don David (Pohnpei), Joshlynn Eberdong (Palau), Josh Fanapngag (Yap), Jesley Ferdinand (Pohnpei), Toyolynn Hilton (Marshall Islands), Jon Arthur Kihleng (Pohnpei), Mc Gee Mereb (Palau), Jonathan Mitsur (Yap), and Aira May Ngalongalo (Saipan)
