AASHE Conference 2010

Members of the Environmental Endeavors Commission (EEC)--Director Ben Ponkratz, Isaac Borofka-Webb, and myself (Joy Larson)--embarked to Denver last night to attend the Association for Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) 2010 Conference. After a slightly unpleasant, but quite suiting ROCKY plane ride, we made it here safely, and as of now are diligently awaiting the student summit session.

The theme of this conference is "campus initiatives to catalyze a just and sustainable world." Working together is key to bringing about positive and effective change. Therefore, throughout the next couple of days we will form connections with students and faculty from around the country, as well as various private sector companies. With a common goal of promoting sustainability, we will collaborate and exchange ideas to bring back to our campus communities. Stay posted, for I will be reporting our experiences and discoveries several times daily.

Your humble narrator,
Joy Larson
