III. Chancellor’s 7th Annual Sustainability Summit: Campus-Wide Call for Posters

The Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on Sustainability (CACS) invites you to submit a poster to be part of the 7th Annual Sustainability Summit poster session, on Wednesday, April 21st. The committee will select and print the top three posters from the campus community based on topic and design qualities. Submittal due date is extended to March 29th. Direct questions to Irene Seliverstov at iseliverstov@berkeley.edu.

The committee will select and print* three posters from the campus community based on topic and design qualities. Poster should meet the following criteria:
-Sustainability-related issues: on-campus initiatives by UCB students, staff, or faculty.
-Current: Within the last 12 months
-Representation: Someone from your team must be present at the Summit during the Poster Session (4-4:30pm).
-Design: Please follow poster guidelines, located on page 2.
-Submittal: Submit to Annelisa Luong, aluong4@berkeley.edu

Poster Guidelines
-Use a crisp, clean design and a strong title. Do not tell the entire history of your project. Present only the main points and show the originality of the work. The best posters display a succinct statement of major events at the beginning, followed by supporting text, pictures, and graphics in later segments, with a brief summary at the end. All lettering should be legible from about 5 feet (1.5m) away. Text material should be approximately 24 points (1/4"/.625cm).
-All posters should feature a title, your name, your affiliation to Cal, and credit others (as appropriate).
-Use the template attached to the email for your poster. Do not delete or move the logos, and be sure to add your own as appropriate. (If you cannot find the template, please e-mail Annelisa Luong at aluong4@berkeley.edu).
-Convert tables to charts, if possible, use color to add emphasis and clarity, and make illustrations simple and bold.
-Enlarge photos to show pertinent details clearly. Only use high-resolution pictures; they will be pixilated when the poster is printed otherwise.
-Summit attendees will come from a wide variety of disciplines, and therefore you are encouraged to produce posters that will be of interest to generalists, not experts in your area of campus sustainability.
-Displayed materials should be self-explanatory, freeing you for discussion.
-CACS will print the poster for your group, but it will remain the property of the individual/group submitting it, under the condition that the Committee may request to display the poster in the future. We hope you design the poster so you can use it at future occasions as well.
