2015 Sustainability Summit, Fort Lewis College


Sustainability Summit

The Fort Lewis College Environmental Center presents the 3rd Annual Sustainability Summit.

The Sustainability Summit is a collaborative event that brings together students, faculty, staff, and community members on campus to promote communication, coordination, and inspiration around sustainability on campus and in our community. This year, we are pleased to announce that Patrick Cummins, FLC alum and Clean Energy Plan Director from the Center for the New Energy Economy will be our keynote speaker providing an overview of our energy future.

Following our keynote, a Real Food Challenge Town hall Panel will commence over dinner to discuss the importance of real food with various members involved with the food system on campus. This format will allow students to interact with the food providers and the panel to inform the audience on real food and its importance. This encompassing event will be focusing on ways attendees can get active with various groups and organizations that offer ways to get involved.
