Sustainability Events

Sustainability Night 

March 7 - 6:30 - 9 p.m.
Robert B. Schultz Theatre, St. John's College

Sustainability Night is an evening of innovative ideas and stories from our campus and beyond on how we can reduce our impact on the planet and make our day-to-day actions and systems more sustainable.

The theme of Sustainability Night 2019 is the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The 17 Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a healthier and more sustainable future for all. They are basis on which our renewed U of M Sustainability Strategy is being built and address global challenges, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The Goals interconnect and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve each Goal and target by 2030. Each presenter will highlight how their initiative is helping progress the SDGs.

Sustainability Night will feature six PechaKucha 20x20 format presentations followed by a panel discussion. A wine and cheese reception will cap off the night giving participants the opportunity to chat with presenters and share ideas amongst other like-minded community members.
