Location: Talley Student Union - Piedmont BallroomDevelop NC State's Sustainability Strategic Plan? Check!
The plan is in administrative approval, so the fun part is coming: turning our plan into reality.
But before we roll up our sleeves and get to work, we need to get together. All past, present and future members of the Sustainability Council's five working groups are invited and welcome to this All Council gathering. This event is...
One part celebration. We've worked hard to create this plan, and now it's time to celebrate (bring your mid-morning appetites as no celebration is complete without tasty treats).
One part networking. Implementing the Sustainability Strategic Plan will take teamwork and collaboration (what better way to start than by meeting someone new?).
One part info-sharing. What's the latest and greatest in campus sustainability? Come for the 411 on 2017's biggest events and opportunities.
All parts exciting. This is what we've been planning for. If you're so excited that you'd like to bring a friend or co-worker, we'd love that. The more, the merrier (and the more impactful).
Can't wait to see you there!
