SCI Talks is intended to engage and educate UW community members on sustainability ideas. Each talk will be presented by a local member of the community who is involved in sustainability whether it's head-on or behind-the-scenes. Each talk is 1 hour long with a presentation or workshop and Q & A at the end. You will have the opportunity to network and engage with the speaker throughout their talk - ask any questions you have on their experiences and passions.

The SCI Talks are going to be held on Thursday evenings at 6:30 PM at EV3-4408 from October 5 to November 9 (excluding October 12). Every time you attend a SCI Talk you have a higher chance of winning in our Weekly Draw.
