Hi, please feel free to list possible speakers for the large lecture event this Fall.

Three Big Questions to be answered:

  1. What types of seminar should we do?
*One day or large seminar series (like we did in the past)?
*How many speakers? / Any discussions or panel among them?
*Mixer afterwards? What type?
  1. What should be the theme of the seminar?
*Sustainable development? (what specifically?)
*Environment-focused? (this is still huge)
*What kind of theme can attract general MIT student body? - tech oriented? business oriented?
  1. So, who should we invite?
*Name it, please:-)

Maybe, someone from UN Millennium projectMillennium Project
