The Refinishing Touch team attends numerous industry events, including those that cover higher education, hospitality. or government topics, and we’re always keen to network, learn from our peers, and get involved.
Last week, the Net Impact conference made its way to Minneapolis and while we couldn’t make the even, we followed all of the news and innovations closely. Net Impact is a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering the next-generation of leadership to use the power of business to drive social and environmental change.
To do so, the organization works with college students, as well as professionals and partners, through on-campus chapter programs, campaigns, and events. The 2014 Net Impact conference focused on breaking boundaries and exploring creative solutions to our earth’s problems.
With more than 350 speakers, 100 live sessions, and nearly 3,000 students and professionals in attendance, the event was a success. Dani Schruter of Environmental Initiative attended the conference, and was impressed with the facilities ability to lead by example, with many environmental initiatives of its own in place, as well as the youth in attendance.
“There is no doubt in my mind that the next generation of environmentalists is ready to tackle the challenges ahead of us face on,” said Schruter.
This is an inspiring, and comforting point. As professionals well versed in the ins and outs of on-campus sustainability, The Refinishing Touch has worked with many different institutions over the years, including Georgetown University and the University of Wisconsin-Stout to name a few. We understand that the true future of our world lies with tomorrow’s generation and the education they are given today.
