Committee Opportunity: 17 Rooms-U Mason

About Mason’s 17 Rooms 

The Institute for a Sustainable Earth (ISE) and the Business for a Better World Center are coordinating Mason’s 17 Rooms-U initiative, a series of deep-dive discussions into the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 17 Rooms is a proven catalyst for engaging, inspiring, and shaping an organization’s mission around the goal. Participants with diverse expertise and perspectives are invited to convene in 17 small groups – one group per SDG – and work together to identify actions their organization can take within 12 to 18 months to make progress toward their goal. 

The intent of ISE’s 17 Rooms-U is to obtain a set of coordinated actions across SDGs and catalyze action.

Who is invited? 

Participants in each room include students, staff, faculty and stakeholders, all coming together for a series of discussions guided by the Moderator Team.

We are creating a community of people at Mason who are knowledgeable and excited about advancing the SDGs and identifying a few ideas for advancing each goal and who are ready to spring into action. Bring your passion, ideas, narratives, initiatives! Everyone will share.
