Sustainability Weekend Conference

Thursday, April 5, 2018 - 12:00pm to Saturday, April 7, 2018 - 5:00pm

The School of Design's Kristin Hughes will be speaking at the third-annual student-led Sustainability Weekend Conference. Sustainability Weekend is a 3-day conference that aims to showcase the larger context of sustainability, bringing people to the table who may not normally engage with one another on this topic. This year's theme 'Sustainability, Inclusivity and Equity' seeks to bring students, professionals, and community members together through informational and interactive events and spark diverse conversations about sustainability that transcend discipline, socio-economic background, race, physical ability, age and lifestyle. We will be covering a diverse range of topics including social injustice, sustainable eating, constructive climate communication,  intersectional technology and innovation, and the role of arts and expression.
