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.
