CoB Students Participate in Summit on Sustainability and the Environment
The 2012 Student Summit on Sustainability and the Environment took place on Friday, April 20 from 8:30 am - 3:00 pm at the Procrastinator Theater in the Strand Union Building on the MSU campus.
This Summit is spearheaded by Gateway Youth Group under the leadership of MSU adjunct professor, Martha Joh Reeder-Kearns, and is part of the Gallatin Earth Celebration. It brings together high school and college students, and informs, inspires and empowers students by providing a forum for dialogue between students, educators, businesses, political leaders, and community organizations.
The Summit creates a forum where students can discuss their concerns about climate change and other environmental matters in a powerful, active and productive way with their peers. A number of College of Business students presented at the Summit, specifically their marketing efforts and results to increase awareness in 1) recycling at MSU and 2) building awareness of what MSU is doing as a part of the President’s Climate Action Plan - both projects from the Marketing 341 class. Elliot Canfield, who is studying business management and entrepreneurship, was the emcee.
