Conference Overview

How can you work to make our transportation system more sustainable, both on campus and in our community?  Join us, and more than 150 friends and experts, on September 22 and 23, 2005, at the Idaho Commons on the University of Idaho campus, in a workshop to learn about and work on one of five problems:

  • How can we make transportation to and within the University of Idaho campus more sustainable and environmentally-friendly?
  • How can we design and build a Sustainable Energy Laboratory and Transit Facility?
  • How can we integrate sustainability into our curriculum?
  • How can we use sustainability concepts in land use and transportation decisions within the Moscow community and region?
  • How can we develop a biodiesel fuel production facility on the Palouse?

Each workshop will be facilitated by a national expert in the field.  Each workshop will begin with one or more presentations highlighting the topic and the assigned problem or task, the process by which the problem or task will be tackled, and a set of possible outcomes for the workshop.  Our focus is on learning and producing tangible results that can be carried forward. 

Please join us for this important event!
