Welcome to Dartmouth 2019

sustainable summer dartmouth staff 2019

Greetings Earthlings!

We are so excited to meet you on July 14! It is going to be an incredible two weeks and we hope you are all getting ready to have a super fun, adventurous, and inspirational time at Dartmouth. We’ll be canoeing on the Connecticut River, engaging in meaningful discussion and workshops, and learning about some of the world’s most pressing environmental topics through the lens of entrepreneurship. All of this will come together in an opportunity for you to use your creativity to develop a social venture that proposes a solution to a current environmental problem. We are really looking forward to meeting you and facilitating in-depth conversations while learning alongside each other. And jumping into the river!

We have a fantastic staff that is anticipating your arrival this summer.
