Coming soon

2019 Sustainability Student Leadership Symposium 

SSLS is the largest student-led, student-focused sustainability event in New England. Students learn from each other best practices in sustainability that they can implement on their campuses. This year we will also be hearing from several local and national environmental groups. The afternoon career panel includes several young professionals in various fields who can provide very valuable insight into the question, "How do I get my first job?" Our four breakout sessions tracks include food, waste management, engagement, and other. 

Sunday, March 3, 2019 


Location: Brandeis University

Break out sessions will be recorded for later viewing!

Register Here by February 22 at NOON.

Now accepting proposals for 10-minute presentations!

Do you have a best practice to share about student-led initiatives on your campus that have worked well? Are you doing something on your campus that you'd love to see replicated elsewhere? Proposals can fit into our three themed breakout sessions tracks: food, waste management, engagement; or they can fit into our "other" track. 

Please fill out the proposal form by February 17, 2019


Presentations within tracks will be announced before the syposium.
