Greening of the Campus IX Conference @ Ball State University

Unpublished

Program

I finally returned to Vermont after a three and a half day intense travel and conference schedule. Flying into Indianapolis on Sunday, I realized I was not in the Vermont bubble any more. This Midwest area is primarily flat, carpeted in square blocks of farm land, suburban development, small towns, and strip malls. My journey began with many flight delays, but ended with good fortune that total strangers made it possible for me to get to this conference.

Over 500 people gathered at University of Vermont this summer to connect, share, and explore their interests in understanding environmental topics from a variety of perspectives. The interdisciplinary backgrounds included professionals in fields as diverse as engineering, music, literature, and ecology. After presenting about systems thinking and campus sustainability at UVM, I attended other conference sessions and describe a few of them below.
