Yale Sustainability Summit Starts March 30th

The Second Annual Yale Sustainability Summit will be March 30 through April 3. This week-long collection of events will build on the increasingly strong campus-wide understanding of Yale's sustainability initiatives, how these changes affect the work we do as a university, and how everyone in our community can become involved. 

This year’s Summit will focus on Yale’s role within the local and global contexts, and the importance of efficiency, innovation, and balance in the current economic climate.

The Summit will feature events hosted by various departments around the university, a “Better Buying Bazaar” to be held in the President’s Room of Woolsey Hall, panel presentations and film screenings, and a “Sustainable Living” exhibit at the Peabody Museum. For a full calendar of events, visit the Summit’s website at www.yale.edu/sustainability/summit.

As a part of this week of activities, departments around campus are arranging to hold their own events. If your department is interested in hosting an event during the summit, please contact Luke Bassett, Sustainability Summit organizer, at luke.bassett@yale.edu
