Experiential Learning Opportunities (ELOs) are intended to advance conference objectives by giving participants the opportunity to see and explore sustainability projects on local campuses or sustainability-related attractions in the community. They offer attendees additional content-rich experiences that enhance learning and provide a forum to engage with each other.

Co-Creating Sustainable Economies through Campus Action at Gonzaga University
Participants will discover the rich partnerships that Gonzaga fosters regionally and on campus to co-create a culture of sustainability for our students, faculty, staff, and community members. Beginning with a discussion and tour with Zag Dining and LINC Foods and accompanied by a light meal featuring food from LINC farmers, participants will learn about Gonzaga’s Real Food Challenge commitment, our Bee Campus USA designation, and tour our roof top greenhouse that provides food on a daily basis to Gonzaga students. This will be followed by a campus tour that will dive into the intersections of fostering behavior change with campus projects and the execution of long-term strategic planning. Finally, participants will hear from community leaders about partnerships and projects that involve Gonzaga University and contribute to the co-creation of sustainable economies in Spokane.
