Event Details

Pre-Registration Closed. Open House. Come by Anytime Tonight!

Institutions from across Chicagoland offering studies in sustainability related fields will all be together at the first of its kind Foresight Education Fair. No matter your age or education level, if you have an interest in pursuing an education in sustainability, this fair has something for you:

  • High school students can meet representatives from undergraduate programs;
  • Undergraduates and early professionals can learn about graduate level opportunities;
  • Professionals and all sustainability interested Chicagoans can learn about continuing education programs at cultural institutions, colleges, and non-profits.

Just Added!
Looking for inspiration and a roadmap for your educational journey? We will have some of Chicago's most successful sustainability professionals on hand to discuss their own experiences at special Sustainability Education Insight Sessions. Confirmed participants include former Chicago Department of Environment Commissioner Suzanne Malec-McKenna, and social entrepreneur Lisa Nigro.

Attendees will be able to circulate through the Haworth Showroom and meet with representatives from the various programs. Bring your questions. Get answers.
