SUMMARY

The Campus Green Initiative Fund hosts a yearly symposium to educate students on different sustainable themes or environmental concerns. Headlining speakers are invited to our campus to address the students and hold a panel discussion.



IMPACT

Students were exposed to new ideas about nature and conservation.



PROCEDURE

The committee for the Campus Green Initiative Fund met several times to coordinate the event. These tasks included order food, reserving the event location, advertising for the event, and contacting speakers and panelists. 



MISTAKES & LESSONS LEARNED

We learned to be flexible because our original speaker was not able to fit us into his schedule, so we had to revamp the theme of the event. It is important to establish strong connections with speakers from conferences and other events to be able to invite them to your campus for future events. 



FUTURE PLANS

Continue hosting this event to bring information to students on our campus
