Power Shift New York
Environmental Student Summit
On April 16th, 17th, and 18th, students from around Western, Central, and Upstate New York will be coming to the University at Buffalo for a 3-day conference on a wide variety of environmental topics. This will be the biggest student-organized environmental conference that UB has ever seen.
The summit will consist of speakers, panels, workshops, and environmental action, featuring Lois Gibbs, Senator Antoine Thompson, Walter Simpson, Margaret Wooster, and Dominic Frongillo as headlining speakers. Local environmental organizations, such as Buffalo ReUse, Buffalo Car Share, Massachusetts Avenue Project, Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo, Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper, and PUSH Buffalo, will be featured at the conference as well.
The summit will also highlight students’ environmental work, and give like-minded students the chance to connect with one another. Other schools involved with the summit include SUNY Fredonia, SUNY Geneseo, Cornell University, Alfred University, and many more! The conference will also feature local bands playing great music on the evening of Friday, April 16.
Tickets are $15, and can be purchased at the SBI Ticket Office in Student Union on North Campus, or online at http://powershiftny.org/?page_
