Stewards of Sustainability: International Policy Conference

Sustainability and the Conference Mission

The United Nations describes sustainability as “development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” Sustainable development is a convergence between the three pillars of economic development, social equity, and environmental protection, also known as the Triple Bottom Line.

The concept of sustainability is relevant to all disciplines. Our Conference seeks to promote the importance of sustainability in the community and to increase student awareness and understanding through discussion and exploration. We hope that students will be exposed to concepts, strategies and tactics so that they can take sustainable thinking and acting beyond our campus walls to become leaders in advancing sustainability in their careers and communities.
