Apr 2-4: Campus, Community and Culture – the Northeast Campus Sustainability Consortium Conference

Share your experiences and your knowledge with other campus sustainability professionals across the northeast USA and eastern Canada!  Campus, Community and Culture – theNortheast Campus Sustainability Consortium Conference (April 2-4, 2012 at Syracuse University) is a perfect opportunity for you to become a more active participant in the campus sustainability discussion.

If you’ve spoken at sustainability conferences before, you’ll find NECSC audiences appreciative, knowledgeable and responsive.  If you haven’t, this is a great place to start – not too big, not too small, just right!  Either way, you’ll get useful, thoughtful feedback and encouragement, and you’ll make great connections.

Please visit http://greenuniversecity.syr.edu/NECSC-2012/NECSC_PresForm.html to learn more about the conference program and guidelines for presenters.  You can submit your presentation proposal from the same page.  All proposals must be received by January 20, 2012 in order to be considered.

Want further clarification about the conference or about presenting at it?  Email Brooke Wears (bkmorley@syr.edu).
