Guest Student Blogpost: Reflections on AASHE 2013 Student Summit

The theme of this year’s AASHE Conference was resiliency and adaptation.  This focus did not go without notice throughout my experience during the Student Summit, a one-day pre-conference event.  Underlying the conversations and presentations at the Summit, I felt my peers were pushing for a concerted effort toward resiliency within this sustainability movement. We have a responsibility to create a better, livable future for the generations ahead of us.

Deep Dive on Day 1 @ AASHE 2012

 

After such an amazing day and night at the AASHE Student Summit on Sunday, I thought it would be difficult to match its quality for the second day. Fortunately, the Monday events undoubtedly matched the high standards set the previous day. Additionally, the presentations, workshops, and events were far more diverse than the Student Summit.

Student Summit @ AASHE 2012 Conference

 

The first day of AASHE has been nothing short of amazing. What with the wide range of interactive workshops through the Student Summit to keep the 500+ university students active and engaged. It's been impossible for any attendant to slip into the corner and not participate.

Inspired by AASHE in the Steel City

When I first found out that we were going to Pittsburgh for the (now) annual Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) conference, several thoughts crossed my mind.  First, as always, I was excited to check out a new city.  Second, I thought that there might not be much to check out.  Visions of a ghost town caused by the abandonment of the steel industry (and now facing the threat of hydrofracking for natural gas), similar to towns in MI abandoned by car industry, flooded my mind.
