Expected to draw over 2,000 participants, AASHE’s annual conference is the largest stage to share effective models, policies, research, collaborations and transformative actions which advance sustainability in higher education and surrounding communities.
AASHE offers many services for its members, but none of them are more visible than the AASHE Conference & Expo. The conference helps fulfill AASHE’s mission to inspire and catalyze higher education to lead the global sustainability transformation. Proceeds from the conference are reinvested into our community by supporting AASHE programs and services. AASHE works throughout the year to build a supportive community that enables us to reach towards our vision for higher education to be a foundation for a thriving, equitable and ecologically healthy world.
With a theme of “Stronger in Solidarity,” AASHE 2017 will focus on how the campus sustainability community can break down walls, build bridges, and continue to make progress toward a healthy and equitable future for all. Join us for an inspirational exploration of the value of community, the power of empathy and the importance of diversity.
