The 2nd annual

The Future Campus

SustainabilityConnect is an annual meeting for all MIT committees, groups, and thinkers involved in creating game-changing campus sustainability programs at MIT. This year, as we celebrate 100 years of MIT in Cambridge, we also look forward to creating a sustainable campus in the coming century. Blending creative presentations with working sessions, the event, held on May 9, 2016, helps you and your teams shape the future of the campus. See last year's video and program here.
 

Video of the event is coming soon. Please check back!
