Each delegation’s environmental issues will be the focus of a group project for a new group of students consisting of a mix of international students and Collegiate “Senior Ambassadors”.
Each group will be assigned to the task of combating one of the environmental problems presented by each country.
This year, they will specifically be assigned to develop a product that could be used to impact the environmental issue. The goal is to work together to develop an early stage idea for a product, combining the world of entrepreneurship with that of environmental responsibility and the opportunities presented by the need for green technology.
A group of faculty from science, English, and history, led by Collegiate’s Director of Economic Education Cathy Melton, advise and facilitate students as they brainstorm creatively. By Friday, their ideas will be fully developed so that they may present them at the Emerging Leaders Environmental Innovation Student Presentations.
