Put on by UNH’s Sustainability Institute, the second annual Sustainability Summit is sure to be both interesting and educational. This year the focus is the Past, Present, and Future of sustainability at UNH. It’s a great chance to learn about how UNH got to where it is now, what we’re currently doing, and where we’re headed.
The Summit will have two main parts; a series of speakers and videos and a small group session. Opening the Summit will be Dr. Tom Kelly, the Director of the Sustainability Institute. The four Student Ambassadors, representing the Culture, Energy, Food, and Ecosystems Task Forces, will also address the group, discussing their respective topics. The videos will focus on initiatives that UNH is currently partaking in. The group sessions, facilitated by the Student Ambassadors, will have the attendees discuss what they’ve learned and where they hope to go from here.
As an attendant of last year’s Sustainability Summit, I learned that UNH is much more involved in sustainable practices than I could have ever imagined. It was very exciting to discover how unique and progressive our university really is!
Want to attend? The Summit will be held in MUB 156 on April 10th from 12:30-2:30pm. Light refreshments will be served. Find the Facebook event here!
