University-wide Sustainability Research Symposium

Part of UNH's Undergraduate Research Conference (URC), the University-wide Sustainability Research Symposium was a new event to the URC beginning in 2021. In this URC event, students from all disciplines present research on a broad range of sustainability challenges – addressing environmental stewardship, social well-being, and economic vitality to meet our present needs while ensuring the ability of future generations to meet their needs – and may use the framework of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals as the definition of sustainability. Undergraduates doing sustainability research who present at this Symposium are automatically considered for the new UNH Sustainability Awards program, including monetary prizes.
