On March 27, the faculty of Environment will be hosting its inaugural year-end Environment Faculty Festival, ENVigorate 2015: Kickstart your community!
We have several events planned through the day. In the morning, the atrium will host a conference-style poster competition for undergraduate students working on major research projects. A call for abstracts has been sent out, and the top 30 entries will be invited to prepare posters. There will be awards for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place! If you are an undergraduate working on a project that fits this format and would like to showcase it at the competition, click here for more information. In addition to this, Knowledge Integration students will be showcasing their these projects in the EV1 atrium in the afternoon, and a number of departments will be coordinating capstone course presentations throughout the day.
There will be various workshops throughout the day, such as yurt building, salsa dancing, indigenous knowledge, women in political leadership, bicycle repair and soap making. Finally, to round out the festival there will be a guest lecture during the lunch delivered by Professor Steve Quilley, screenings of documentaries, and of course, food, beverages, and an evening of live entertainment by in-house talent.
We encourage everyone to take part in the festival, undergraduates and graduates students along with faculty and staff from all departments!
