IGEN would not be successful without yearly events that allow us to bring our college affiliates together with other sustainability professionals and partners to share best practices and new methods for growing the green economy in Illinois. Currently, our annual events include:

  • IGEN Sustainability Conference
    This is an important opportunity for our network to collaborate, share information, and explore new opportunities for the advancement of sustainability on campus and statewide. This conference includes panel discussions, presentations, and workshops about the latest sustainability-related best practices, careers, education, and technology. Business/organization sponsors are welcome to offer demonstrations, exhibits, and raffles.

As a sponsor, you will enjoy the following benefits, depending on your level of sponsorship:

  • Free registration
  • Logo displayed on all event materials
  • Exhibit space
  • Special recognition during event
  • Event naming (i.e. “Keynote sponsored by X or reception sponsored by X”, etc.)

If you are interested in sponsoring an event, please contact us at
