April 28, 2009

Synergy to Highlight Nationally Renowned Speakers and Presentations by Experts in Ecology, Technology, Culture, Health, and Social Change

Synergy: The 8th Annual Sustainable Living Conference is being held at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. The dates for the 2009 conference are Wednesday, May 6th through Friday, May 8th.

This conference has grown to be a powerful platform to engage and address the intertwining themes of ecology, design, culture, health, and social change.

Synergy is organized by a non-profit coalition of student organizers. The title of the event reflects a belief that the solutions to the world’s problems can only be solved though collaboration, where the whole becomes more then the sum of its parts.

This year’s conference will include presentations by notable leaders in their respected fields. Speakers include the Rhizome Collective's Scott Kellogg, CEO of Natural Capitalism Hunter Lovins, and founder Kevin Wilhelm.

Aramark will be serving a locally sourced and organic meal option each day in the Greenery. Synergy is a free event and open to the public, all are encouraged to attend. Parking is $2.00 per day. Synergy is funded by the Evergreen State College Services and Activities Fee Allocation Board.
