Events

The Nelson Institute hosts a number of public events throughout the year that join the community and the university around environmental themes. Whether for a thought-provoking day of presentations and discussions at our annual Earth Day conference, an evening of cinematic journey at the Tales from Planet Earth film festival, or a gathering of perspectives on the latest environmental science or challenge, we invite you to attend.
