This year UW-Madison is excited to announce the theme, Innovating Solutions for a Sustainable Future. Students will discover concepts of sustainability and environmentalism as they relate to different majors and subsequent careers here on campus. The program will take a holistic approach at understanding sustainability through the lenses of science and technology, history and humanities, and business and entrepreneurship. In this approach, students will be encouraged to develop their passions into paths in higher education. After finishing the program, students will be better equipped to understand how changes to their own habits and the choices they make may be used to imagine solutions to create a better, more sustainable future.
