Description

Join the Sustainability Management Student Association of the Earth Insitute and School of Professional Studies from Columbia University at the 6th Annual Sustainable Perspectives Symposium!

This year, the Symposium focuses on society's current consumption patterns and the changes needed to allow for a shift to a more sustainable future. Impacting Behavior for a Sustainable Society dives into the role of sustainability professionals in supporting this shift with examples of their experiences, and the solutions they are pursuing.

The Sustainable Perspectives Symposium, going beyond the issues:

  • Dig into the ins and outs of designing and managing a program to facilitate behavior change with the student-led workshop, Managing for Behavior Change.

  • Hear from corporate leaders on how companies are successfully affecting consumer behavior at the Conscious Consumerism panel.

  • Learn from policy-makers on how their roles can encourage corporate behavior and transparency in the absence of mandatory requirements at the Policy Influences on Corporate Responsibility panel.

  • Discover how sustainability professionals can and will shift society with our closing Keynote Speaker.

  • A unique opportunity to continue the behavior conversation with our accomplished panelists and diverse participants during the post-event reception.
