Although the subtitle sounds tame, the theme of this Campus Sustainability Conference is anything but: Engagement and Empowerment around Climate Change: Fostering Inspiration and Action at the Local Level.
The workshop sessions are:
- Climate and sustainability action, engagement, and empowerment on CT campuses
- Engaging in state policy and legislation
- Engaging in your community and municipal action
- Engaging at the grassroots level
The nearly daylong program (Registration at 7:30 am, over at 3:00 pm) is free, with breakfast and lunch included. The registration form is here. The location is Beckham Hall at Wesleyan University.
