Don’t Miss Out on the New England Campus Sustainability Forum This Friday!
Friday Sept. 20, 2013
Hosted by the Colleges of the Fenway
550 Huntington Ave
Boston, MA 02115
The New England Campus Sustainability Forum has once again attracted strong headliners to
create an engaging and informative day. Julian Agyeman, noted climate and sustainability
justice champion; Mary Powell, CEO of Green Mountain Power; and Bill McKibben,
distinguished scholar and climate change activist, all bring a unique and valuable perspective
to the theme of Climate Change and New England Colleges: Impacts and Solutions.
This year’s Forum will again provide a uniquely relevant, cost-effective, and timely option for
engaging everyone on campus in vital sustainability issues and for networking with colleagues
from around the region! The interactive format is designed to both inform and teach, through
skill building workshops that integrate exercises and group discussions into the sessions.
Through this model, attendees will learn how to:
- Assess all types of campus vulnerabilities to a changing climate, including infrastructure, endowment, and social risks.
- Identify solutions to address these challenges, including strong collaboration both within your campus and your broader community.
- Leverage strong communication and branding as a means to inform and inspire action.
The New England Campus Sustainability Forum is co-organized by the New England Board of Higher Education, AASHE, Clean Air – Cool Planet, the Colleges of the Fenway, GreenerU, the Northeast
Campus Sustainability Consortium and Second Nature.
