Trent Green Party Club Conference: Putting your degree to action

Feel that breath of fresh air? It’s coming from the Trent Green Party Club!

Not wasting their time on hot air — setting up a very practical mini-conference that includes a litter-pick-up!

March 22, 2019, 9 a.m. til 4:30 p.m. at the Trent University East Bank Campus.

Vice President of the club, Tia Bankosky explains, “This is a conference of speakers who will be discussing how they are putting their degrees to action, whether they have graduated or are still in school. Sam Demma and Dillon Mendes will be speaking as well as running a clean-up of the Wildlife Sanctuary as part of the Social Enterprise, PickWaste. We will be hearing from Robert Kiley, Gianne Broughton and Brock Grills about how they have applied their Trent degrees to make positive differences in their lives after leaving Trent, particularly in the fields of green politics. Victoria Kacer will be discussing how her education and experiences have helped them in activism for environmental and Indigenous rights. A small lunch will be provided, along with snacks, tea and coffee prepared by Trent Green Party volunteers. There will be mostly vegan options available.”
