Eco-Reps Regional Symposium

The 2011 Eco-Reps Regional Symposium was hosted by Babson College on November 5th. UVM Eco-Reps Danielle Smith and Amanda Chin traveled with program coordinator Steve Posner to MA to meet with over 100 other students from the New England region.

Steve, Amanda, and Danielle presented about their work developing strategies to foster sustainable behavior on UVM's campus. Presentations by other campuses included The 411 on Compost/Vermiculture (Harvard, Northeastern, and Tufts), Best Ways to Engage Students on Campus (Bard, Babson, and Harvard), and Fun Dorm Activities (Keene State, Suffolk, and Brandeis).

While Steve, Amanda, and Danielle take their work seriously cultivating an environmentally responsible culture at UVM , they still made time for playing Ultimate Ninja. Some of those other Eco-Reps were seriously quick!
