Please note, with the FVCC environmental club dormant in 2024 we were unable to connect with a campus host, and this event is not endorsed by the College. We hope to find a host for future years, please be in touch if your student group at FVCC is interested!
Together, we'll explore the intersection of nature and technology, aiming to create a livable climate and a better world.
