Solar Spark Collegiate Conference

We are excited to be hosting Solar Spark in Spring 2021, a virtual collegiate conference focused on environmental equity and sustainability that will be put on by students and for students!

Solar Spark is a virtual collegiate conference filled with thought leadership on environmental equity and sustainability. You’ll have the opportunity to connect with experts, employers, and peers through an online collegiate community experience.  Sustainability-themed art and culture activities compliment sessions focusing on policy, tech, and community action to create a well-rounded and meaningful conference experience. 

Are you a student interested in attending this spring conference (taking place April 1-4)? If so, you will be able to enjoy workshops, discussions, and training in solar (and related technologies) and environmental justice through an online collegiate community experience. You can look forward to:

  • Learning from luminaries in the field about the solar energy industry, innovative renewable energy technologies, energy justice, policy, and the future of solar through student-led interviews and discussions with industry experts. 
  • Connecting with organizations and career pathways that support clean, renewable energy, as well as meeting industry employers and learning about internships, fellowships, and entry-level positions.
  • Getting to know other college students who share a passion for an equitable and sustainable energy future.

We want to make this conference as accessible as possible to students and do not want cost to be a barrier to attendance.

You are also encouraged to request a scholarship to attend at no cost if your school is not able to sponsor you. More information is included below.
