Beyond Waste Student Summit Marshall University
February 3 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
The Beyond Waste Student Summits bring together students to understand the systemic impact of waste, from extraction to disposal. This full-day leadership intensives invite students from all levels of experience and interest to co-create a collaborative and justice-oriented space.
Attendees will have the opportunity to collaborate on simulated campaigns that range from building zero waste campus infrastructure to standing in solidarity with frontline communities. These spaces provide students with the opportunity to work on a project from start to finish, allowing for mistakes and questions, and giving students the opportunity to grow as leaders.
In the Beyond Waste Summits Series, we will be offering different project simulations, each focusing on getting a project off the ground and running on Emergence University, your simulated campus for the day! The project simulation highlighted in this event will be:
Break Free From Plastic: Fighting for a Plastic-Free Campus
- Getting your campus president to commit to stopping the use of single-use plastics is a big step for any campus trying to achieve zero waste, but how do you get there? In this simulation, students will work on rallying interest from among the campus community, and hosting a signing ceremony that works to hold your campus and president accountable.
