Sustainability Summit 2011
University of Washington campus: October 24-26
JISAO is co-sponsoring the University of Washington's 2011 Sustainability Summit. Administrators and scientists from JISAO will have a booth on Red Square Wednesday, October 26th, to talk with the public about JISAO's projects and initiatives and talk with students about how they can become involved. More than 50 other groups will also have booths as part of the event's vendor exhibition.
The Sustainability Summit celebrates the University’s leadership and accomplishments in environmental stewardship and sustainability. It provides the opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to find ways to get involved with sustainability on campus, and to learn about the Campus Sustainability Fund, the UW Climate Action Plan, and how our community partners play a role in UW sustainability. There will be a variety of exhibitors and discussion groups during the three-day event. Highlights include Keynote Speaker, Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn, and a showing of the film Carbon Nation, which was seen in this year's Seattle International Film Festival.
