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):
1. New York State Green Building Conference: SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry partners with the U.S. Green Building Council New York Upstate Chapter to host the New York State Green Building conference at the Doubletree Hotel in East Syracuse, NY. The New York State Green Building Conference’s mission is to promote, educate and support green building design, construction and processes. ESF hosted the Green Building Conference in 2008, 2009 and 2010, and will host the conference again in March 2011.
2. ESF Women’s Caucus: The ESF Women's Caucus was formed by a group of ESF students, staff, and faculty who wanted an opportunity to work and socialize with other women. The first meeting convened November 17, 1994, as a brown-bag lunch discussion. The Caucus aims to raise consciousness about women's concerns, work for change to improve the climate for women at ESF, and create a community that is a respectful forum for diverse ideas. The goals are to increase the number of women students and faculty at ESF, find ways for women to better communicate and coordinate or sponsor activities that benefit them, and improve services for ESF families. Any woman student (undergraduate or graduate), staff member or faculty member, including any woman that is at ESF part-time, can join the Women's Caucus. The Women’s Caucus facilitates numerous environmental lectures on the ESF campus each semester.
3. Green Infrastructure Symposium: This program provides the opportunity to learn about the green infrastructure technologies at work in Central New York along with current technology design, applications and policies. The last symposium occurred in 2010.
