AASHE Global Conference on Sustainability in Higher Education: Day One

October 12, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 6:00 pm


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 One of the conference will include keynote speakers Dr. Michael J. Sorrell and Dina Gilo-Whitaker:

Dr. Sorrell will share a vision for a new model of higher education with poverty reduction as a core purpose.

Dina Gilo-Whitaker will draw from her forthcoming book to argue that a sustainable future must simultaneously incorporate Indigenous knowledge and a decolonial ethic of political accountability to Indigenous nations for its ongoing genocidal settler structure.

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!
