Our Collective Campus (PLV)

News Story

Reimagine your role and actions in the framework of a healthier, more equitable, and more sustainable future at the Environmental Consortium of Colleges & University’s 11th Annual Student Summit on April 15.

As we explore today’s environmental challenges, we find that no real solutions can exist within a bubble. By its very nature, “sustainability” must address not only ecological concerns, but social concerns as well. That’s why the Environmental Consortium of Colleges & Universities invites students from around the region, of all disciplines, to gather at the:

11th Annual Student Summit
“Our Collective Campus: Acting on Our Social and Environmental Responsibility”

Friday, April 15
10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
Willcox Hall
Westchester Campus

Free for all students, the Summit provides speakers and participants a chance to discuss what it takes to be an advocate, why environmental solutions must involve other disciplines, and how academic institutions can form more meaningful community partnerships. By building our collective campus—our region and students, working across institutional boundaries—we can make a greater impact. At this timely gathering, students will hone their advocacy skills, while gaining inspiration and perspective from one another.

Highlights of the day include a keynote address by Peggy M. Shepard, co-founder and director of WE ACT for Environmental Justice; networking lunch; a tour of the Environmental Center complex; workshops on climate justice, advocacy techniques for students, ecological restoration and sustainability, and intervening in complex systems such as food, water, and health; and more.
