Events

The Sustainability Initiative runs, supports, and promotes events throughout the school-year. We are eager to support the efforts of MIT faculty, students, and alumni, so if you have an event you would like to showcase on our website, please email sustainability@sloan.mit.edu.

We also promote a small number of events outside of MIT each year that are of high interest and value to our constituencies; if you are running an event that we should know about, please contact sustainability@sloan.mit.edu.
