National Wildlife Federation keynotes at Gyeonggi Green Campus Global Forum in Korea

from Wildlife Promise

Julian Keniry, National Wildlife Federation’s Senior Director of Campus & Community Leadership, traveled to Seoul, Korea this week to keynote and host a workshop at the 3rd annual Gyeonggi Green Campus Global Forum.  The Green Campus Global Forum, first held in 2010, is an opportunity for college and university leaders from around the world to share best practices, network with peers, and discuss challenges facing the international green campus movement. On May 24-25, 2012, representatives from the United States, South Korea, Germany, United Kingdom, and other countries are coming together with the collective goal of sharing best practices in campus sustainability, developing strategies to network with campuses internationally, finding solutions to connect with private organizations and companies interested in the green campus movement, and identifying roles for local government to help grow the movement.

Julian Keniry is giving a keynote on the role of colleges and universities in the conservation and sustainability movement and how each stakeholder on campus – students, faculty, staff and administrators – are key to the success of the institution becoming more sustainable and reducing their global warming pollution. Julian is also hosting a workshop focused on student leadership, highlighting student roles in greening the campus curriculum and operations, while also educating the campus community and the broader community on their efforts.
