Apr 6-8: Sustainability Weekend at CMU

CMU Sustainable Earth will be hosting the second-annual Sustainability Weekend from April 6-8, 2017. Sustainability Weekend is a 3-day conference that aims to showcase the larger context of sustainability beyond the environment. Following this year’s theme of My Impact in Sustainability, this weekend will bring students and professionals together to spark conversations about their individual impact towards a more sustainable world. It is both informative, with speakers and panels, as well as interactive, with guided tours and workshops. We will be covering a diverse range of topics including social injustice, recycling, getting involved with the local community, entrepreneurship, and food waste. Our highlighted keynotes include:
