Sponsored by Oberlin’ Environmental Studies Program, Student Sustainability Leaders: Sustainability in Practice is a student-run, student-centric conference celebrating undergraduate and graduate contributions to the interdisciplinary field of sustainability.

This event is in partnership with the National Council for Science and the Environment (NCSE) and their other Ohio member colleges and universities: University of Dayton, University of Toledo, Ohio State University, and University of Findlay.

Registration for the event will include a light breakfast and lunch.

This event will support student sustainability leaders in both research and career development. Students will have the opportunity to showcase their research and to learn about different career options in various sustainability fields.

The day will be split into two sections: a poster session and sustainability organization booths in the morning, followed by small panel-lead breakout sessions in the afternoon.

A keynote speaker will present at lunch. The breakout sessions will feature professionals in a variety of different sustainability themed careers including the public sector, the private sector, and nonprofit organizations.

Panelists will share their career stories in sustainability with students and offer career advice. Additionally, experts on applying to graduate school and internships will present their advice to interested students.

Non-student attendees are also invited as they will gain a better understanding of current student sustainability research, and leave with opportunities for collaboration between higher education, public and private sector organizations, and NCSE at the state and national levels.

All Ohio students of all disciplines are invited and present research and scholarship. Registration will be free for students and will include a free one-year membership to NCSE.

Full details and event schedule will be announced in August.
