[description of last year's event]:
Synergy: The interaction of two or more agents or forces so that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their individual effects. (From Greek sunergia: cooperation and from sunergos: working together.)
Why Synergy? We believe that it is vital to look at sustainability beyond any one specialized area of interest. That’s why we’ve chosen to create a sustainability event that combines issues of culture, design, ecology, agriculture and social justice (themes that have conventionally been looked at in isolation). By recognizing the interconnectedness of these issues, we can work beyond our individual interests to create a vision, and ultimately a model of sustainability.
What is Synergy? The Synergy conference is a free four-day event that takes place in the late winter at The Evergreen State College. It is paid for by TESC student activities fees and supported by donations, as well as by many academic programs and community organizations. It was created by a diverse coalition of students in a collective effort to create a holistic learning experience and a model for a sustainable world.
