Assistant Professor Forrest Meggers will give the keynote at this year's annual meeting of the New Jersey Higher Education Partnership for Sustainability (NJHEPS). The meeting is scheduled for April 24, from 10 am to 2 pm, at Duke Farms in Hillsborough, NJ.
Focusing on "New Jersey Campuses as Living Laboratories for Sustainability," the 2015 meeting will "feature NJ faculty and student campus-as-living-laboratory research and leadership efforts. Campus as laboratory efforts foster academic and operational partnerships that encourage campus culture change, multidisciplinary collaboration, and accelerated impact. To our knowledge, this will be the first state-wide gathering to convene operational leaderships as well as faculty actively conducting energy, resource conservation, and behavior change research using NJ campuses as test beds. We are also pleased to offer our 2nd annual Student Research, and Campus Leadership awards."
Meggers' keynote is entitled "Hacking Sustainability: Using research to push the limits of sustainability on the campus as a lab."
Registration to the conference is free. For more information, and to register, visit the NJHEPS website.
