CREATE a Better Now
Call for proposals for sustainability conference
Have you ever seen yourself being a leader in innovation? In event planning and organization? Have you ever had ideas on how to change the world?
The Centre for Student Initiative Centre (CSI) is hosting a student-led conference that encourages students in the areas of global citizenship, leadership development and sustainable communities.
Students will have an opportunity to format sessions however they choose such as conference organizers, presentation or workshop facilitators and collaborators, round table, panel discussions, display, world café, open space and pecha kucha.
Zachary Champoux, third-year student in Bachelor of Business Administration, says this is a great opportunity to show how students can “create change now by getting involved.”
“This is about getting students involved with making change in the areas they care about and to help create global citizens.”
According to Champoux, this is the third year the conference will be running, with it previously being hosted through the Sustainability Centre.
The CSI opened this year, replacing the Sustainability Centre. Alana-Dawn Eirikson, CSI Coordinator, says they started planning the transition last year.
“We wanted to expand programming to support students while keeping things that were working, like the CREATE a Better Now Conference.”
The CSI has a space for students to come and study, while pitching any innovative ideas they have.
The conference will be a three-day event from Jan. 13 to Jan. 15.
Currently CSI is calling on students for proposals to form the conference. To submit a proposal, students can contact CSI at firstname.lastname@example.org and fill out a form.
