Does the institution hold major events related to sustainability, such as conferences, speaker series, or symposia, that have students as the intended audience?:

A brief description of the event(s):

The Office of Sustainability often plays host to large events, such as conferences or a speaker series, and students are welcome and encouraged to attend.

In 2011, the college and the city of Decatur hosted architect Steve Mouzon to discuss his book "The Original Green." In early 2012, the Institute for Georgia Environmental Leaders had their annual summit at Agnes Scott. They had many panel discussions available to students, particularly one that focused on green careers. The college has also hosted a reading and discussion by David Orr.

The Environmental Residents put together a panel discussion called "The Three E's Panel," which discussed the triple bottom line through the lens of student life.
