UMass Amherst students are using crowdfunding for support in hosting the Student Sustainability Leadership Symposium (SSLS) in the fall.
The SSLS, formerly known as the Eco-Rep symposium, is an annual conference that brings together 200 sustainability-minded students from across the Northeast for discussions and activities. The symposium is meant to inspire and motivate students, so they can address their own college or university’s sustainability initiatives.
Donation to the SSLS crowdfunding campaign will help fund event materials, sustainable fair trade foods options, workshops, a guest speaker and more.
The campaign is seeking $5,000 for the event.
