New Format for 2022:

This year’s virtual Global Conference on Sustainability in Higher Education (#GCSHE) will take place on three separate dates – October 18, October 26 and November 3! Save the date to join us for a new format that will allow increased conversation, connection and learning.

Conference Objectives:

#GCSHE will convene a diverse group of attendees including faculty, students, sustainability staff, administrators, business partners, nonprofit representatives, government officials and community members to examine:

  • How can higher education leaders inspire a greater sense of urgency to tackle climate change at their institutions?
  • How do higher education sustainability leaders shift focus from incremental improvement to organizational transformation?
  • How can higher education institutions partner with their communities to prepare for and respond to the consequences of climate change?
  • How can higher education prepare students to effectively shape and contribute to efforts to address the climate crisis?
