Sustain What?

Eager to go green? The Environmental Consortium’s 10th Annual Conference is coming to Pace PLV on November 8 and 9

In celebration of the 10th year anniversary, the Environmental Consortium of Colleges and Universities will return to the theme of campus greening and the role of higher education on November 8–9 in Pleasantville as part of the 10th Annual Conference. Much has changed in the sustainability landscape since the 2006 campus greening conference, so this year’s program will highlight current trends, best practices, and curriculum design.

Join teams from around the region in keynote, plenary, breakout, and poster sessions. Share new ideas, gain renewed inspiration, and bring back plans.

Pace Academy for Applied Environmental Studies Director Michelle Land will give the welcome address, with a plenary on preparing campuses for an uncertain future featuring Andrew Revkin, senior fellow for environmental understanding at the Pace Academy and New York Times DotEarth blogger on November 8.

Keynotes include Gus Speth, Professor of Law, Vermont Law School, and David Hales, President and CEO of Second Nature.
