The Indiana University Robert H.

On Saturday, October 19 from 9:30-3:30, high school students, college students, professional and environmentally minded people from around the state will be convening in Indianapolis to discuss campus sustainability. Particularly, we will be discussing four topics throughout the day: Recycling/Energy, Eco-Activism (Policy, Protests, and Politics), Food and Water, and Transportation.
Students will be encouraged to trade ideas freely throughout the day. Accordingly, the 2nd Summit will not feature key note speakers, but will instead be a series of panels comprised of both students and professionals.
The Summit is a fantastic opportunity for high school students to see the type of work that they can get involved with, while networking.
This event is free to all students, faculty and staff! For anyone else, admission is only $5 in advance and $8 at the door.
Registration: 9:30 am, Atrium
Program: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, Wynne Courtroom
