Creating a Sustainable Future: A Pitch and Poster Competition

Saturday, April 25, 2015 at 11:00am to 12:30pm

Cornell leads the way to a prosperous future with a showcase of 15 top sustainability projects from campus and research presented in a friendly competition.

G10, Biotechnology Building

Hear and learn about a wide variety of projects and activities, from Ithaca campus hopes for “deep hot rock” enhanced geothermal systems for building heating, to research in Africa that links soil health, food security, and human welfare.   
Vote for your favorite project for a flourishing tomorrow.  

In this session, campus administrators and faculty and grad students will compete with 1-minute pitches with accompanying posters to showcase the range and  breadth of sustainability activities – including how we are responding to climate change -- on and off campus.  The world requires new, novel thinking at the intersection of the 3Es – Energy, Environment, and Economic Development. Prosperity in the next 150 years depends on today’s discoveries.

The winner, picked by the audience, will receive a cash prize from the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future to continue the research or activity.
