National Geographic Launches Initiative Connecting College Students with Innovative Changemakers: Inaugural ‘National Geographic On Campus’ program premieres at University of Miami

The National Geographic Society announced its new initiative, National Geographic On Campus, an inspiring event designed to unleash the spirit of exploration in college-age students that features live talks, engaging panels and educational workshops. The program will premiere at the University of Miami (UM) in Coral Gables, Florida, on Nov. 9-10, 2018.

The two-day science and storytelling event, developed in collaboration with UM, will bring together National Geographic Explorers—photographers, scientists, storytellers and educators—with UM scholars and local thought leaders for a series of dynamic talks and interactive workshops. Students will have the opportunity to explore local and global issues—from the unique challenges facing Florida to those facing our planet—and the strategies and transformative ideas that can be used to help solve these critical issues.
