From Day One: Make a difference

From Day One

From Day One is a marketplace of social innovation, designed to engage and connect students to the many ways they can make a difference at Babson and beyond. A collaboration between the Sustainability Office and The Lewis Institute, this annual tradition kicks off the day before classes begin and continues into the following week. Understanding how to simultaneously create social and economic value is serious business, and at Babson we start with that intention From Day One.

Join us this year as we kick off From Day One with the Babson Sustainable Kitchen Dinner on August 30, 2016. Save the date for From Day One Fest on Friday, September 9, from 12 - 2 p.m.
