The AASHE annual Conference & Expo is one of our most powerful tools for empowering higher education to lead the sustainability transformation. With nearly 2,000 participants, AASHE conferences are the largest stage in North America for higher education sustainability thought leadership. Attendees from around the world share innovations, activities, frameworks, learning outcomes, tools, strategies, research, theory and leadership initiatives that are changing the face of sustainability in higher education. With trailblazing keynote speakers, workshops, sustainability tours, student summits, awards and networking opportunities, AASHE conferences represent and inform the full spectrum of current sustainability challenges and best practices in higher education each year.

AASHE conferences have taken place across the nation in Nashville, Tennessee; Los Angeles, California; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Denver, Colorado; and Raleigh, North Carolina. Over the years AASHE has brought top national and international sustainability speakers including founder and author Bill McKibben, Climate Reality Project President/CEO Maggie Fox, urban revitalization strategist and public radio host Majorta Carter, and EARTH University President Dr. Jose Zaglul.
