Project Green hosting sustainable campuses conference
Memorial will Welcome the fourth annual Atlantic Sustainable Campuses Conference from Jan. 30-Feb. 1.
Hosted by Memorial’s Project Green, the conference includes sessions on working with the media, sustainability assessments, inspiration for campaign ideas, and how to start a sustainability office on your campus, to name just a few.
Participants will also have the opportunity to take part in an interactive session, Environmentalism and the Developing World: A Perspective from a Community Project in Iquitos, Peru, presented by Cara Lewis, an intern with the Atlantic Council for International Cooperation (ACIC).
Organizers say the conference is a great chance for participants to build the strength of campus sustainability groups, give new volunteers the opportunity to meet with dozens of student leaders and staff engaged in various aspects of campus sustainability and share knowledge and experience with others in the Atlantic Region.
