On Saturday, May 3rd, I attended the first of two-days at the 6th Annual MIT Sustainability Summit.  Since 2009, a representative group of MIT graduate students have volunteered and organized this two-day summit.  The students represent all five schools (Management, Engineering, Architecture and Planning, Science, and Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences) at MIT.  Each year, this group brings together prominent speakers from a vast array of fields to discuss sustainability.
