The annual Sustainable Perspectives Symposium is the Sustainability Management Student Association's (SUMASA) flagship event. The symposium serves as a forum to help sustainability practitioners share best practices and next practices and explore a new theme each year. It is also an opportunity to connect current experts with Columbia’s emerging sustainability leaders. This year's theme is Real World Applications in Sustainability where we will explore how sustainability takes different shapes depending on the industry and the meaning that different stakeholders assign to the word.
The symposium will be from 1:00 to 5:00 PM, with a reception to follow.
