The Sustainability Symposium is organized each spring by the JHU Sustainability Leadership Council. The symposium features dialogue on critical sustainability topics through a series of cross-disciplinary panel discussions. Speakers include sustainability researchers such as faculty, students, and practitioners including university professional staff and community partners. Panels feature a diverse array of voices and perspectives to holistically explore each sustainability topic area from a variety of JHU disciplines, schools, divisions, and community partners.
Topics include green transportation, clean energy, environmental justice, food systems, sustainable health care, and more. Panel sessions are either 50 or 75 minutes, and typically consist of a series of short introductory talks, followed by moderated roundtable discussions and Q&A. Applicants are also welcome to submit a proposal to present a research poster during the open session.
