A number of Humphrey School students participated in this year's Sustainability Symposium held at UMN. The annual symposium, which is hosted by the Institute on the Environment, provides an opportunity for students from all disciplines to display their work and research related to sustainability.

Marta Monti (MPP) shared her research on institutional food waste while Tashi Gurung (MS-STEP) discussed the impact of campus community gardens. Vivek Bhandari (PhD) took home an award for Best Poster in the Art or Multimedia category for his video titled, "Myth-buster: Investigating myths about smart meters - a precursor to a sustainable power grid." The video was a collaboration between Bhandari, Sathish Jayaraman, Charlotte Woods, and Maria McClintock.
