leave a comment »

University of North Dakota faculty and students are invited to exhibit their sustainability research and projects at the annual Community Connect Forum. The forum is coordinated by the University of North Dakota Center for Community Engagement and hosted this year by Warren, Minn. on Saturday, April 27. Community members, faculty, and students from around the region will gather for this year’s theme of “Sustainable Communities”.

Registration for the forum is free, and can be found at http://communityengagement.und.edu. The website also includes a schedule for the day of the forum and a link for exhibiting your research or organization.

The forum will focus on civic, economic, and environmental sustainability, addressing topics such as smart government, new business ownership models, and changes in agriculture and energy. As hosts of the forum, Warren will have the opportunity to showcase its own town story and their efforts toward creating more sustainable practices in their community such as becoming a GreenStep City. Warren will also highlight their unique assets with their downtown businesses and nearby Audubon wildlife preserve. Participants will have the opportunity to network and view exhibits of different regional projects, agencies, and resources.

The forum will be held in the Warren-Alvarado-Oslo School. There will be free transportation available for UND participants on the day of the forum to travel to Warren; the bus will leave Memorial Union at 8 AM. Warren is about 30 miles northeast of Grand Forks.

Some links below  provide more information and a chance to register for the event. Also, if any students want to exhibit and research or projects at the forum, there is also opportunity to do so.
