MIT Sustainability Summit 2013
The fifth annual MIT Sustainability Summit has the theme of “empowering action” towards sustainability. This reflects the urgency of innovation, leadership, and change at numerous scales, from the individual to the firm and from the city to the world, in light of global environmental threats.
We intend for our attendees to leave feeling empowered to take action towards a sustainable future, either in their existing personal or professional context or in a new one. This is the motivation for showcasing multiple domains of action. We hope that germs of company, product, or project ideas spring from the panels and charettes, and new communities of action emerge out of the formal and informal conversations over the weekend.
