AASHE Global Conference on Sustainability in Higher Education: Day Three
October 14, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pmFree
The failure of many entities to respond effectively to a deadly pandemic, coming at a time when society is already reeling from intensifying climate-related disasters, ongoing systemic racism and rising authoritarianism, has resulted in profound apprehension about the future. With a theme of “The future is …”, this year’s Global Conference on Sustainability in Higher Education (GCSHE) reflects the uncertainty about the future that many feel and invites participants to recommit themselves to the urgent work of building a future that is sustainable, equitable, and resilient.
Day Three of the conference will include keynote speakers Heather McGhee, Dr. Tracey Osborne, Dr. Stephen Sterling and Dr. Madhavi Venkatesan:
Heather McGhee will discuss her new book, The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together, with particular emphasis on the way in which racism hurts higher education and limits the prospects for climate action.
Inspired by a recent essay series entitled The Pedagogy of Transition: Educating for the Future We Want, Dr. Tracey Osborne, along with Dr. Madhavi Venkatesan and Dr. Stephen Sterling, will reflect on the shifts in educational policy and practice necessary to create a sustainable future.
We seek to highlight inspiring examples of higher education leadership that empower participants to envision and create such a future. Ultimately, the future is ours to make. Are you committed to leveraging the power of higher education to forge a brighter future? Join us at GCSHE — register here!
