The Social Impact-athon, a weekend-long challenge focused on promoting environmental justice in Boston by investing in local nonprofit organizations, is featured in News@Northeastern.
Over the course of the weekend-long event, which runs from Friday, Jan. 18 through Sunday, Jan. 20, teams of students will hear proposals from a dozen Boston-based nonprofit organizations that are doing work related to the environment. Then, at the end of the weekend, the teams will submit plans for awarding a total of $50,000 to at least three of those organizations.
