For presenters

The London Student Sustainability Conference highlights student research and projects which create positive impacts in the world. The conference is entirely student-led; with opportunities for students to exhibit their work through presentations, posters and performances.

The conference will take place on Thursday 28th February 2019. This is a great opportunity to share your work with a diverse audience, practice presentation skills and network with students, staff and professionals from the University of London and beyond.

Poster exhibition

All presenters, apart from video and performance submissions, will create a poster which will be displayed throughout the day. Posters are a great way to present your research/project in an attractive and easy-to-read format. Your poster should be A1 size (either landscape or portrait) and contain a mixture of text, images and graphics. You can decide on the layout, but it must be clear and logical so that the reader’s eye naturally follows the flow of text.

Our poster checklist tells you all you need to know about creating a poster.

Oral presentations 

In addition, students can present their project or research in a 10 minute presentation, using slides if you wish (PowerPoint, PDF, Prezi etc), which will then be followed by 10 minutes for questions and discussion.

Videos, performances and art installations 

We also encourage students to apply whose project or research takes the form of a video, music, dance or spoken word performance, art installation or practical demonstration!
