2014 PERC Student Sustainability Symposium
Presentations and Media 
Dickinson College
March 21st, 2014


On March 21st, 2014, over 100 students from 24 institutions gathered to share knowledge from over fifty projects! No way can we capture the totality of this PERC event at Dickinson College in 4 minutes. But the video above shows some selected highlights to give you just a flavor of the exciting ideas presented, the concepts discussed in the roundtable discussions and the work explained during the poster session

It was a stimulating day that showed us some of the amazing sustainability work being done by students on Pennsylvania campuses. For information on the poster session topics and authors, go here.  For a run-down on student-led roundtables and their moderators, as well as the notes from the end-of-the-day session, go here.
