Oct. 14: AASHE Conference 2012

 

Head to LA on October 14th for the 2012 Student Summit of the annual Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) conference.

At the summit, students have the opportunity to present their unique sustainability projects. They can each contribute their ideas, resources, and opinions on sustainability efforts, and will have the opportunity to network with other students from different schools after these student presentations. The summit will also include a variety of workshops that can guide students in starting sustainability efforts at their school.

The summit will also feature keynote speaker Billy Parish, the Co-Founder and President of Solar Mosaic, a solar investment marketplace. Among his many accomplishments, he founded the Energy Action Coalition, the largest youth advocacy organization in the world focused on climate crisis, and was honored as a “Climate Hero” by Rolling Stone magazine.

The Student Summit provides opportunities for information and resources to start initiatives on your campus. AASHE also provides students with the opportunity to submit their individual research, as well as apply for their two awards: the Student Sustainability Leadership Award and the Student Research on Campus Sustainability Award.

Oct. 1: GDAE Brown Bag Lecture “Work in the Post-Growth Economy”

Location: 44 Teele Ave., Somerville, MA

Time: Oct. 1st, 12:30-1:30pm

Head out to GDAE, located just off campus at 44 Teele Ave., and enjoy a free lunch and lecture with Neva Goodwin, GDAE’s Co-Director! GDAE Brown Bag Lectures are held in the 3rd floor conference room and are open to the public. For more upcoming lectures at GDAE, see their events page.

GDAE’s name: Our name reflects our mission. We have capitalized the “A” of “And” to emphasize that it is the interrelation between Development And Environment that is our special focus; studies or policies relating to either of those terms alone have too often resulted in one or another kind of failure. We use the word “Global” to indicate that we are concerned with the linkages between Development And Environment in all parts of the world. There are important differences – as well as some important similarities – between the meaning and the consequences of those linkages in the North and in the South. We are concerned with understanding both the differences and the similarities, from both the academic and the policy perspectives.
