HOPES[25] Meeting on Monday!

Hello all!


Come join us for our second general meeting on Monday, October 15th from 5:30 – 6:30 in the Swindells Room (Room 230) in the EMU! Our kickoff meeting last week was very productive! We will be continuing our discussion of this year’s theme by starting off with the most popular topics from last week’s brainstorm.


There will be more PIZZA!


If you were not able to make the meeting last week, here are the highlights:

We covered a brief history of the HOPES Conference, highlighting some of the most successful themes and speakers.

We had a brainstorming session where we explored how the definition of sustainability has evolved over the last 25 years and how the HOPES Conference can give this word a reboot.
