Veterans and Green Leaders Come Together To Celebrate Environmental Contributions

(Clovis, California, United States) – October 5-6, 2017 @ The Clovis Veterans Memorial District

We would like to thank everyone who attended and helped make our 2017 Student Environmental Leadership Summit and Conference & Induction Ceremony another smashing success! This year we honored leaders in sustainability and our nation’s veterans as we partnered up with the Clovis Veterans Memorial District to co-sponsor and host the events.

For this year’s conference, we invited pioneers and experts from a variety of industries to discuss the various innovations and challenges facing all three elements of our environment: air, land, and sea. We also recognized veterans for their service to our country and their continued commitment to sustainability and protecting our environment.

This year we featured various panels and keynote speakers headlined by Dr. Michael E. Mann, showcased over twenty exhibitors featuring their sustainable products, and highlighted the achievements of successful veterans in the green industry. At the end of the day, we honored our accomplished 2017 inductees and heard their inspiring stories of how they became leaders pioneering sustainability in their field.
