INVITATION: Columbia University’s 9th Annual Sustainable Perspective Symposium

Posted on

Friday, March 6, Columbia University is hosting their 9th Annual Sustainable Perspective Symposium, and wanted to share the event, as many of your students may be interested in the topic we are covering.

The theme of this year’s symposium is Climate Leadership: Disrupting Business As Usual. During the event, representatives from the world’s most powerful industries––those who lead in conversation and action with regard to sustainable business practices––will come together to discuss how they are leading their organizations to reach the 2030 climate goals.

The symposium will be on March 6 2020 from 12-6 PM at the Joseph D. Jamail Lecture Hall in Columbia’s Journalism School. We would so appreciate if you could share the email blast below with your network.

Spots are limited, so we encourage reserving tickets as soon as possible. Tickets can be reserved at this link.

Thanks so much for your help! Should you need any additional information, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

Best,

Beatrice
