Actions and Detail Panel
UMN Sustainability & Energy Expo
Fri, April 7, 2017, 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM CDT
As our global industrial society churns ahead, many see environmental issues intersecting with all aspects of life. What are the best ways to address these challenges? Policy? Business? Activism? The truth is, all of these issues and institutions interact with each other; changes in any one area can affect activity in another. In addressing these wide-ranging problems, we must understand how they interact and carefully form solutions which don't cause unintended consequences elsewhere. More than ever, it is important for young problemsolvers to communicate and collaborate with each other to better understand how all the moving parts of the sustainability ecosystem fit together.
The UMN Sustainability & Energy Expo welcomes all UMN students to present their work in sustainability through lightning talks, posters, and artistic/multi-media. This day-long conference draws student researchers, leaders, and advocates together to connect and learn from one another in addressing issues ranging from the local to global scale. Local environmental leaders will judge student work in their efficacy in communicating their ideas.
