Stanford students want to solve real-world problems! 

In celebration of Earth Day, please join us for the Connecting the Dots Symposium.  Researchers and students at Stanford University will discuss the interconnections and interactions among humanity’s need for energy, food and water, and their impact on human health and the environment.  Stanford students, faculty and partners are using knowledge learned in the classroom to develop and deploy innovative projects locally and around the world.  A central theme is that acting, and leading by example, can elicit the societal transformation needed to support a shift to more sustainable systems that address the world’s most pressing challenges.
