Why attend the Sustainability & Energy Expo?

  • Learn what students across all UMN campuses are working on
  • Connect with people from other campuses (or your own!)
  • Learn from our panelists, featured to the right, about food, energy, water and climate justice

You are welcome to join for whichever parts interest you. However, we hope you’ll consider tuning in for the panel at 2:30 pm, where we’ll be hearing from several local experts about issues related to environmental justice. Two of our panelists include Bula Wayessa from the University of Minnesota and Amy Fredregill from WSB Engineering.

Past attendees report enjoying learning about the wide breadth of work UMN students from across different campuses are doing in sustainability. This work ranges from research on bioplastics and renewable energy battery storage to student-led organizing around Line 3, fossil fuel divestment, and other issues. Join us this year to be inspired by the projects, accomplishments, and plans of current UMN undergraduates and graduates!
