greenlight for girls, asbl is an international organisation dedicated to inspire girls of all ages and backgrounds to pursue STEM subjects - Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics - by introducing them to the world of science in fun and exciting ways!

We do this by holding interactive & hands-on events of all sizes and all around the world showing the link of STEM to all careers and to link them to role models and companies for their future.

Since our inception only a few years ago, we are growing by leaps & bounds and now have reached & personally inspired more than 23,500 students on 6 continents by holding more than 170 events with our growing network & team of 4,200+ role models worldwide.  One way we do this is with our amazing corporate partners – we have global partnerships with Covestro, Nokia, Procter & Gamble, Cisco, AIG, Stanley Black & Decker – and many more local and national partners.

Our major events this past year alone include:  NASA Space Center Houston, Oxford University, Cincinnati (P&G’s headquarters), Dublin (AIG’s EMEA Headquarters), Finland (3-city launch with Nokia), Goa India, Athens, Paris, Nigeria, Canberra Australia, NYC, Shanghai, Moscow, Bangalore, Mumbai -- and of course Brussels which is our headquarter city.  In Brussels, it’s our largest event & the one that we try out new experiments and ideas to bring around the girls – and it’s so well known that the registrations are full within 48 hours after they open.

Here's a glimpse of what we do (and more on our Youtube channel):
