Closing the generational divide in AI and Sustainable Intelligence

World’s first Accelerator focused on Generation X in Green & AI Skills



GenXThrive is an initiative that helps Generation X professionals learn new skills in AI and sustainability. The program is designed to help people stay relevant in the job market and make a positive impact on the environment.

The OECD’s Skills Outlook 2023 emphasizes the need for countries to enhance education systems and upskilling opportunities to align skills with the evolving demands of the labor market, especially considering advancements in AI and sustainability. The report highlights a major skills gap, as job postings requiring green skills grew by 8%, yet the share of green talent only increased by approximately 6%. Existing solutions predominantly target the youth, potentially missing out on key talent with transferable skills and decision-making power. The aging workforce faces increased discrimination, with 25% of cases in the last 15 years attributed to ageism. GenXThrive by Gleac stands as a beacon of change, addressing the urgent need for upskilling and reskilling across generations.

GenXThrive guarantees participants a transformative experience with tangible outcomes and impact. From enhanced awareness of green and AI skills for job opportunities to entrepreneurial preparedness, the program ensures a comprehensive skill set. Feedback from industry experts and the creation of a valuable professional network contribute to the holistic growth of each participant, providing a competitive edge in their chosen fields.

Specialization opportunities allow individuals to tailor their skill development, making them not only job-ready but also uniquely equipped for their desired career paths. The program's 12-month duration integrates employer socialization, providing direct exposure to industry needs and expectations. Participants, in the role of Green Skills and AI Intergenerational Ambassadors, champion sustainable practices across age groups.

GenXThrive's comprehensive 12-month program unfolds in three distinct phases. The initial six weeks focus on AI and Green skills training, empowering participants to develop purpose-driven, environmentally conscious projects using AI as a key enabler. The subsequent six weeks offer specialized tracks in startup building, AI modeling, career navigation, ESG strategy and reporting, and industry shadowing. Micro-learning opportunities continue through dedicated green modules on the GLEAC app, ensuring continuous skill enhancement

GenXThrive is not just a program; it's a community. Participants have the opportunity to engage in intergenerational mentorship, peer-to-peer learning, and access to a network of 500+ GLEAC industry experts. The community comes alive with a two-day in-person summit in the UAE after Week 6, featuring inspirational speakers, team-building activities, and networking opportunities. GenXThrive is more than a training ground; it's a supportive community fostering growth and collaboration.



The GenXThrive team is a group of experts and enthusiasts of AI and sustainability. They are passionate about helping Generation X professionals thrive in the face of technological advancements.
