2012 Eco Rep Symposium
Saturday, November 3, 2012 from 12:30 PM to 5:30 PM (PDT)
Are you a campus representative interested in...
- getting students involved in sustainability efforts and keeping them engaged?
- effective strategies for residence hall behavior change?
- getting over bumps in the road to success?
- edutainment and cool or popular projects?
- improving your existing Eco Rep program, or sharing your successes?
Then look no further! The 2012 Eco Rep Symposium will bring together the region’s most passionate student leaders for sustainability. Students will have the opportunity to share insights from their campus experiences and build networks they will be able to tap into for future sustainable ventures.
Brought to you by the Brown University Eco Reps with support from GreenerU, this symposium is designed with the help of students, for the students. Schools are not required to have a formal Eco Rep program to attend – in fact this event is perfect for schools that have a select group of active students who have a passion for change and a penchant for leadership.
The Symposium will serve as a collaborative space to share and learn from one another about successful student engagement programs for sustainability. School representatives who attend will gain insight into the key challenges facing Eco Reps or similar model programs and strategies to overcome them.The agenda for the day is as follows:
