"Is There a Win-Win Approach
to Sustainability in the
Greater Philadelphia Region"
The Explorer Connection at La Salle University will host its Second Annual Sustainability Symposium on March 17, 2012 in continuation of its Sustainable Development Initiative. This event is once again a proud part of La Salle Heritage Week 2012.
Please visit the official Symposium Website for a full event schedule, brief biographical sketches of all the speakers and descriptions of each of the symposium sessions.
**Important Note: opening remarks begin at 9:30am followed by the first breakout session at 10am. However, check-in with continental breakfast starts at 8:45am. We ask that you arrive between 8:45am and 9:30am to check in before opening remarks at 9:30am. Thank you!
Registration for this event is required. Registering will enable your participation in the full symposium, which runs from 9:30am - 2:30pm on March 17th. This will include two periods of interactive breakout sessions, a delicious lunch, an interactive panel discussion, and closing ceremony.
Selecting Breakout Sessions
There will be two periods of breakout sessions. Each period will have three sections from which you can select. These three sections will be repeated twice so you will be able to participate in two of the three sections during the symposium.
You will select which breakout sessions to attend when filling out the registration form (you'll be directed to this form after selecting your ticket and clicking "Register"). Make sure to complete this form and indicate the two breakout sessions you wish to attend.
Please note: We will do our best to accommodate your interests, however space is limited for each section and we will cap the sections on a first-come, first-serve basis.
La Salle is located at 1900 W. Olney Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19141.
The symposium activities will take place in two locations on main campus (as noted on the schedule): the Holroyd Center for Science and Technology (check-in, opening remarks, and breakout sessions); and the La Salle Union Building (lunch, panel and closing remarks).
