One rainy day, we shut down the World Economic Forum.

SEAN is an awesome network of environmental and social justice student activists in NSW.

We come from Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong, Canberra, Lismore, Western Sydney, and sometimes Armidale, Bathurst and Blue Mountains, and we are all part of the Australian Student Environment Network (ASEN)

We meet regularly, including at the annual National Environmental Conference, Students of Sustainability, NSW is hosting the conference in 2005, which will be the first time in five years, thus the first time in our activist generation.) SoS usually attracts up to 1000 participants, and is a very inspiring week during early July.
