Dear New England Campus Sustainability Forum Attendees-
Wow! From across the New England region, over 200 people representing more than 35 colleges came together to share and learn about essential skills and topics to advance sustainability in higher education. We would like to thank all of our presenters who shared their time and knowledge, sparking ideas and discussion on new ways for our campuses to leverage the broad collective knowledge and capital resources available to them. We hope everyone was able to take advantage of the networking opportunities to further engage with the presenters and one another.
We would also like to thank our host institutions, Wentworth Institute of Technology, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, MCPHS University, and Simmons College, who along with the other Colleges of the Fenway, provided warm and welcoming spaces for our Forum. From navigating their unique campuses to serving delicious local food, the staff, faculty, and students from our host institutions provided support across the board.
Finally, though, we would like to thank each of you for attending our Forum and sharing your expertise. As sustainability leaders, you each stepped forward to nurture our vision, share your knowledge, encourage one another, and pass on the experience to help us pave our way into the future. You have shown that by working together we are truly our greatest assets.
