Join us for the AASHE Sustainability Education Forum 2024 on June 6 & 7, building upon the success of our inaugural 2023 event.

Utilizing Open Space Technology, the Sustainability Education Forum offers a space for open discussion, providing a platform to share expertise, co-create the future, and advance sustainability education across disciplines. Whether you’re a faculty member, curriculum developer, instructional designer, or anyone passionate about sustainability education, this event promises authentic conversations, professional connections, and a chance to recharge your efforts.
