Campus Sustainability Initiative has formed a wonderful partnership with the Center for German and European Studies to host larger symposium about Climate Change. In the Fall of 2010 we held Campus Climate Weeks- a month full of speakers, hands on volunteer projects, a demonstration Masai hut outfitted with a safer oven model, and more. http://www.brandeis.edu/cges/news/upcomingevents/climatechangeweeks/ccindex.html
