2010 Sustainability Symposium

The first UT Campus Sustainabilty Symposium was a two-day event, September 9-10, 2010, showcasing the many sustainability-related research projects and operations initiatives here on campus.  In addition to the CSD, UT Office of Sustainability, and the Campus Environmental Center, this event was co-sponsored by the LBJ School of Public Affairs, the Center for Teaching and Learning, and the Environmental Science Institute.

Thursday, September 9th, several UT facilities, such as the power and water plants and various other facilities, offered tours throughout the day for members of the UT community to learn about the operations side of sustainability on campus.  Later that evening, in Gearing Hall Rm. 105, the Campus Environmental Center hosted their annual Earth Summit, a panel discussion focused on green buildings and energy management, with key stakeholders from across campus.

On Friday, September 10th, the CSD organized a full-day symposium, where members of the UT community gave over twenty short presentations covering a wide variety of topics.  This event was held in the Bass Lecture Hall within the LBJ School of Public Affairs.  See the Schedule of Events for a list of the day's presentations.
