Presenters sought for 2012 campus sustainability conference being hosted by SU
Call for presentations open through Jan. 20
Syracuse University’s Sustainability Division invites students, faculty and staff to share their experiences on “Climate, Community and Culture”—the theme of this spring’s eighth annual Northeast Campus Sustainability Consortium (NECSC) Conference being hosted by SU. Geared toward sustainability professionals in higher education, the NECSC Conference will be held April 2-4, 2012, at the Sheraton Syracuse Univerisity Hotel and Conference Center.
Members of the SU and SUNY-ESF campus communities are encouraged to submit conference presentation proposals. The conference hopes to create a wide variety of sessions addressing the many interconnected and inter-disciplinary sustainability issues affecting campuses today.
Prospective presentation topics may address one of the following conference tracks:
- Sustainability 101;
- community relations, operations and municipality collaborations;
- community-based research and education; or
- the next frontiers in campus sustainability.
The deadline to submit presentation proposals is Jan. 20. The online submission form is available at http://greenuniversecity.syr.edu/NECSC-2012/NECSC_PresForm.html. For more information about the 2012 NECSC Conference, contact Brooke Wears at 315-443-4005 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The NECSC is a collection of college and university sustainability practitioners from the northeast United States and eastern Canadian provinces who join together once a year to discuss themes common to the region.
