SELF-Sustain - UM Students


SELFsustain connects students across all University of Minnesota campuses in a retreat setting allowing participants to think critically and creatively about and progress on the sustainability front. This SELF (standing for Student Engagement Leadership Forum) took place on the University of Minnesota, Duluth campus on October 26-27, 2012. Events at the conference include lightning talks on student-led projects and research on all campuses in addition to activities that encourage teamwork and conversation on sustainability topics.




Students from each campus were recruited by the sustainability coordinators and student leaders. Each campus was invited to share 3 to 5 lightning talks. Twenty two students representing all five campuses presented. All participants took part in walking tour of the U of M Duluth campus, highlighting solar panels, rain gardens, LEED certified buildings, recycling and storm water management projects.
