Enhance Your Major with Environmental Training

NEW YORK, NY - On Monday April 25, The Environmental Consortium is holding the 6th annual Student Summit of the Environmental Consortium of Hudson Valley Colleges and Universities. The event is from 2:00 PM to 6:30 PM in the Alfred Lerner Hall at Columbia University.

If you are an undergrad or graduate looking to add ‘environmentally aware’ to your resume, guest speakers such as Nilda Mesa, assistant vice president of Environmental Stewardship from Columbia University, and Tim Rairdon, executive director of the Environmental Consortium, will offer insight and advice.

The event is open to all majors looking to put their green ideas to action.

Following the speakers, there will be a round table discussion and a break out session to co-mingle with other like minded and inspiring guests. Cost of the event and dinner is free. RSVP needed by April 18th and seats are limited but still open.

Following the event, Columbia University extends an invitation to “Special Post-Summit Event, separate from the Student Summit.”

“Students are also invited to attend Earth’s Caretaker: An Evening with NRDC Co-Founder John H. Adams and Patricia Adams. Taking place on Columbia’s campus, John and Patricia Adams will be interviewed by Andrew C. Revkin, The New York Times Dot Earth blogger, at 7:00pm,” the Environmental Consortium wrote.

The after-event will conclude with a book signing. “Co-Sponsored by Theodore Gordon Flyfishers and the Environmental Consortium. Proceeds benefit a regional scholarship fund. Student tickets only $10.”

Environmental Consortium of Hudson Valley Colleges & Universities was established in 2004 to advance understanding of the cultural, social, political, economic, and natural factors affecting the Hudson River Watershed, and is headquartered within Pace University’s Academy for Applied Environmental Studies. The Consortium’s mission is to harness higher education’s intellectual and physical resources to advance regional, ecosystem-based environmental research, teaching, and learning through interdisciplinary, collaborative programs and information sharing.

  1. People undergoing environmental training should also share what they know to the people on their neighborhood. This would help improve their relation and respect to the environment in general, when they are properly educated.

  2. Well, the good news for those people who have missed this training or are not able to get this kind of training in their location is that they can now take up environmental training programs online. There are now a lot of approved providers of this course are accepted by the sate. Check them out too.
