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

EcoSpeakers Maybe, we could write on our proposal saying, we are going to invite one or several speakers from here or something like that... (Shan)
