We want to make this event accessible to people, especially nontraditional students and those in underserved areas, and provide a platform for all students passionate about sustainability.”

— Ryan Kim


As environmental concerns continue to take center stage, young leaders from around the globe are set to converge for the highly anticipated second annual Student Sustainability Summit on April 6 and 7, 2024. This transformative event, hosted virtually on the Zoom Events platform, aims to create a sustainable and eco-conscious future by inspiring, educating, and connecting students and young leaders to drive meaningful change.

Sustainability is no longer a choice but an imperative. The Student Sustainability Summit serves as a beacon of hope, uniting students, educators, environmental activists, and professionals to pioneer change for a greener tomorrow. Through collaborative efforts, the Summit seeks to address pressing environmental challenges and set a new trajectory for a sustainable future.

The 2023 Summit brought together more than 40 student volunteers from 10 universities, 50+ student and professional presenters, and over 300 student attendees from various countries, including the United States, India, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, the Philippines, and Mauritius. Building on the success of the previous year, the 2024 Summit promises to inspire and generate innovative solutions and goals toward sustainability.

Ryan Kim, co-founder of the Student Sustainability Summit, emphasizes the importance of accessibility and inclusivity, stating, “While there are numerous conferences available, most have not made big efforts to make the event accessible to people, especially nontraditional students and those in underserved areas. This conference aims to bridge that gap and provide a platform for all students passionate about sustainability.”

The urgency of addressing environmental issues is underscored by the escalating global average temperature and the establishment of initiatives like the Climate Corps, which empowers students and young leaders to become agents of change. The Summit aims to harness the collective passion, knowledge, and determination of these young minds to pioneer innovative solutions and set a new trajectory for a greener future.

Key Highlights of the 2024 Summit include:

1. Renowned Expert Speakers: The summit will feature environmentalists, climate scientists, and student leaders discussing sustainability efforts locally and worldwide. Past speakers have included representatives from Harvard Medical School, Maryland Sierra Club, and the University of Bath.

2. Networking Opportunities: Attendees will have the chance to network with peers and professionals from diverse backgrounds, fostering collaboration and idea-sharing. A career fair, both in-person at the University of Maryland, College Park, and virtually, will provide information on internships and opportunities in the sustainability field.

3. Student-Led Presentations: The heart of the summit lies in student-led projects, empowering attendees to showcase their research and initiatives and fostering a culture of shared commitment to sustainability.
