Sustainability Conference 2008

Putting Sustainability to Work
Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo
July 31st-August 3rd, 2008
learn . collaborate . network . educate . inform

Join over 850 students, staff, faculty and administrators in California higher education to explore the ways in which we can build a social, environmental, and equitable environment on campuses statewide, where future generations are prepared for green jobs, and bring sustainability into policy and mainstream culture. We will share innovation and best practices across the California State University, California Community College and University of California systems.

This conference is designed to highlight leaders in campus sustainability who have been successful within their own focus areas and can present what challenges, opportunities, and accomplishments are within reach. After attending these presentations, you will have the tools and resources to return to your campus and be ready to implement new campus sustainability projects.
