Join the Sustainability Management Student Association of the Earth Institute and School of Professional Studies from Columbia University at the 7th Annual Sustainable Perspectives Symposium! As natural disasters and extreme weather events become more intense and frequent every year, there lies an opportunity and challenge to rethink and rebuild cities to survive, thrive, and combat the effects of climate change. This year’s Sustainable Perspective Symposium, Innovative and Resilient Cities, explores our roles as individuals and sustainability professionals in driving new concepts and programs in energy sourcing and efficiency, waste reduction and management, and outreach and behavioral change. Learn about local and global efforts to develop more robust planning to anticipate response to an ever-changing environment. Our expert panels and featured presentations with industry leaders provide a dynamic forum for solutions-based conversations and actions. This event is supported in part by the Tamer Center for Social Enterprise at Columbia University. Stay tuned for more exciting updates as we finalize our speakers by following SUMASA on Facebook and Twitter, as well as through #sumasymposium
