Evergreen Climate Symposium

May 16, 2020 - 8 AM
The Evergreen State College
2700 Evergreen Pkwy NW, Olympia

One day of action, empowerment, and progressive ideas. The Evergreen Climate Symposium is a forward thinking climate convention that will be held at The Evergreen State College

This event will not just be a talking circle, but a springboard for community action and a boon to the Evergreen Academic community, providing students and community members with new ideas and resources.

There will be environmental organizations and speakers relating to advocacy, political will, science, and agriculture. We also hope to have many hands-on activities like letter writing, a recycling 101 and composting 101 session.

We are looking forward to having National, State and Local speakers. We are planning for several panel discussions as well as open discussions, with Q & A sessions with the general public and Evergreen community. We will also be having a rave/dance party afterwards.
