AASHE Global Conference on Sustainability in Higher Education: Day Two

October 13, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 6:00 pm

Free

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 Two of the conference will include keynote speakers Daphne Frias, Zamzam Ibrahim, Chloe Maxmin, and Dr. Ian Haney López.

Daphne Frias, along with Zamzam Ibrahim and Chloe Maxmin, will share inspiring examples of how young people are leading the way to a sustainable future on campus and beyond.

Dr. López’s keynote address will explain how the climate movement cannot succeed unless race, class and gender solidarity are at the heart of everything we do.

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!
