This year’s theme, “Get Out of Your Geek Speak,” encourages you to communicate your story in terms relatable to the broader University community. At the Sustainability Symposium, you will have the chance to develop your communication skills by showing and articulating the importance of your research to a broad audience.
As a presenter at the Sustainability Symposium, you will hone presentation skills by sharing your research, enhance your resume, and connect with individuals sharing an interest in sustainability. Submission categories include conference posters, lightning talks (5-minute presentations of your work), and multi-media pieces (artwork, design project, video, etc.).
