As you all know, we had to cancel this year's Sustainability and the Climate Crisis conference scheduled for March 16-18, 2020. However, the undergraduate students in Professor Shannon Lloyd's Business & Sustainability course (MANA 369) agreed to have their posters for the scheduled Sustainability Challenges in Supply Chains poster session posted online and, since Professor Lloyd was able to set up a panel of qualified volunteer judges, we were able to run the poster competition! The posters were evaluated based on the analysis and recommendations presented, as well as overall quality. The winners are
1st Place: Jack Angliviel de la Beaumelle, Amadeus Collard, Nelly Harb, Alexandre Camus, and Jason Romeo: On a quest to reduce waste: Towards building a circular economy for waste through inter-industry corporate partnerships
2nd Place: Petros Mascia, Chloe Gonzalez, Jeremy-David Deneault, Abdullah Hasan, and Maeve MacLeod: Sustainability energy: How the digital world consumes more than you think
You can see all the posters here.
Congratulations to all the student winners!
Special thanks to the participating students, the volunteer judges (Alumnus Lucas Fraser; Professors Raymond Paquin, Suchit Ahuja, and Fereshteh Mafakheri; and doctoral students Debdeep Chatterjee and Kian Rahimi) and especially to Professor Shannon Lloyd for making this happen.
Stay tuned for more conference news and mark your calendars for next year's conference: March 17-19, 2021!
