Woods Student Leader Lunch
On October 14, 2009 I attended the Woods Student Leader Lunch with Co-Director Professor Buzz Thompson. There are almost 40 student groups involved with environmental issues this year - truly an impressive number! It is a very exciting time to be involved with sustainability and environmental research and initiatives at Stanford where we are very lucky to have dedicated and brilliant faculty and administration working both on academic teaching & research and infrastructure & operations. During the lunch, environmental curriculum, research opportunities for students, conferences, workshops, and other ways of engaging students in environmental research and education were explored and discussed. It was a very productive lunch and allowed many of the student leaders focusing on environmental issues, to come together, meet each other, and discuss ways to collaborate not only with each other but also with the faculty and administrators. It is a very exciting year for environmental projects!
