A brief description of the event(s):
The Institute for Sustainable Energy, Environment and Economy (ISEEE) hosts several sustainability events series including the ISEEE Distinguished Speaker Series, the ISEEE Environment and Energy Seminar Series and the ISEEE Experts Series.
The International Resource Industries & Sustainability Centre (IRIS) hosts the ConocoPhillips IRIS Public Seminar Series which hosts regular events throughout the year with the aim of making research on sustainability accessible to the general audience.
ISEEESA (Institute for Sustainable Energy, Environment and Economy Students' Association) holds an annual Networking Dinner, which features a keynote address on sustainability by a guest speaker. This Networking Dinner is an opportunity for students to meet with industry professionals and to learn.
ISEEESA also holds the E3DP Program (Energy, Environment, and Economy Development Program). This is a four session seminar that provides students with the chance to learn about energy, the environment, and economy from industry experts and academia. The fourth session is a case study competition in which students apply the knowledge they have learned during the previous seminars to solve a given case.
