Campus Sustainability Coordinators (CSCs) Zane Anthony ’16.5 and Sophie Vaughan ’17 traveled to Bentley University in Boston to take part in leadership training through the C2C Fellows Network. Middlebury students Marjeela Basij-Rasikh ’15 and Hasher Nisar ’16 also attended the workshop.
The C2C Fellows Network is a national program run by the Bard Center for Environmental Policy. C2C offers workshops for undergraduates and recent graduates aspiring to leadership positions in sustainable politics and business. Graduates of these workshops have the opportunity to join a national network with access to continuing educational and professional opportunities.
“Because of the conference,” shared Anthony, “we are more informed citizens. We are also better public speakers and fundraisers, better equipped to create change within systems of power, and leaders who appreciate the importance of thinking critically and creatively.”
As members of the Campus Sustainability Coordinators program, Anthony and Vaughan both received funding from the Office of Sustainability Integration to attend the workshop. In an effort to provide leadership development to CSCs, the Office of Sustainability Integration aims to make learning opportunities, such as attending conferences and workshops, available to the members of this group.
