In this unique conversation, three graduate students will speak about how their military service during peacetime and war played an unconventional and surprising role in their decision to study at the School of Sustainability. They will share personal stories--from "showering" with bottled water to teaching villagers to cook with solar ovens--from deployments in conflict areas.

Join us as they describe how those experiences shaped their world views and affirmed the importance of sustainability in their personal and professional lives.

Short Leash Hotdogs, a local food truck, will serve lunch in the parking lot west of Wrigley Hall. Please arrive at 11:30 a.m. to retrieve your free food voucher before our presentation begins at 12 p.m.
