Spring 2023 ESE Symposium

The annual ESE Symposium is an entirely student-run event that provides a forum for discussion of interdisciplinary environmental issues. The symposium offers graduate and undergraduate students an opportunity to critically examine emerging environmental issues and interact with experts in various fields. This event is made possible by the generosity of our various sponsors.

This year’s theme, “Silent Disasters and Silenced Communities: An Exploration of Quiet Cataclysms,” seeks to provide a space for open conversation about concealed environmental disasters that impact silenced communities. Our symposium will focus on climate change, environmental pollution, and the biodiversity loss crises and will examine how these complex disasters affect the most marginalized members of our society. This February, we invite all members of the Purdue community to join us as we explore the complexities of environmental disasters with field experts. Our Symposium will include panel talks, a movie showing, a keynote speech, and a poster session to discuss the world's quiet cataclysms. This year's ESE symposium will be in-person for the first time since 2019. We hope to see you there! 

RSVP for Climate Justice and Silent Impacts Panel, Dark Waters Showing and Panel Discussion on Chemical Contaminants and Environmental Health, Keynote Speech, and Poster Session on the Agenda page.
