We will be providing a comfortable space at the Student Union where institutions will be offered tables to spread awareness and reliable information to all visitors. Guest speakers, and visitors alike, will be invited to discuss, ask questions, and learn from each other.


A Question and Answer session, as well as the majority of the event, will be live streamed on YouTube, for attendees that could not be present. To conclude the event, a symbolic, “Tree Planting Ceremony”, will be held by one of our guest speakers. We hope to see you there.
