Jessie and Rachael introduce the day's first ice breaker
I’m so proud of our Eco-Reps! Today they rocked the Babson/GreenerU Eco-Rep symposium – they ran the ice-breaker for the whole group, gave two presentations, sponsored the composting for lunch and dinner AND had the best showing of any school! Here are some pictures:

Focus the Nation selected 20 rising clean energy leaders—5 each in the categories of Technicians, Innovators, Politicos and Storytellers—to spend one week on Mt. Hood, Oregon together at its Recharge! Retreat. One of the delegates in the Innovators category is Julie Paul from Tufts, an incoming second year graduate student in Chemical Engineering. Her research is primarily focused on the interactions between mammalian and bacterial cells, but she has worked on a project exploring the creation of biofuels using e.coli.
“I’m excited to see the technology and I’ve never been to Oregon, where we will be able to see solar, hydro and wind energy projects all in one place,” Julie said over a phone interview. The retreat will end with a hike on a glacier.
We will catch up with Julie when she gets back. Find out more about the Recharge! Retreat
