Chico State Sustainability Conference Growing Toward a Sustainable Future
From Thursday, March 06 2014 -  8:00am
To Saturday, March 08 2014 - 7:00pm


This student-run conference hosts over 100 speakers and 1,400 participants at CSU, Chico.
Conference Registration is required for all conference events, presentations, keynote presentations, workshops, and receptions. Register online January 1 - February 28, 2014.

Purpose: Explore approaches that will make a difference for a sustainable future. Our annual conference provides a forum to discuss current issues that are relevant to us all. We seek to develop common ground to help build a sustainable society; one that balances economic needs, social needs and environmental realities. We will address solutions for the global problems we are all now facing. The conference will include workshops, seminars, posters, and facilitated discussions.

Audience: Our audience is broad but aimed at the growing number of faculty, staff, students, administrators, public officials and citizens who embrace the concept of sustainable development, who wish to work together to build sustainable communities, who believe that we can learn from one another, and who realize there are many voices and perspectives that must be heard. Sessions are designed for beginners, as well as those with advanced knowledge. So that everyone has a chance to participate we've kept our registration fees to a minimum.

Sustainable Food and Agriculture: This year's conference will make a priority of addressing food and agriculture. We would like to provide insight on methods and solutions developed that will allow us to feed the world’s growing populations sustainably.
