Since the first annual conference in 2012, this event has been held in the Green Quad’s Learning Center for Sustainable Futures at the University of South Carolina. The decision was made to begin allowing other institutions to host, beginning in 2020. Today, the University of Georgia has the honor to host. Over the years, 20 different colleges and universities from North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, and Texas have attended this important event.
