AASHE 2019 Conference Banner

Expected to draw approximately 2,000 participants, the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education’s (AASHE’s) annual conference is the largest stage in North America to exchange effective models, policies, research, collaborations and transformative actions that advance sustainability in higher education and surrounding communities. We invite you to join us in Spokane, Washington from Oct. 27 – 30 to share your knowledge, achievements and ideas.

With a theme of Co-Creating a Sustainable Economy, AASHE 2019 is tackling the root cause for the continued rise in carbon emissions: our dysfunctional economic system. The conference seeks to showcase and strengthen higher education’s contributions to the movement for a sustainable economy, which we see as inclusive of the exciting work happening under a variety of other names such as the solidarity economy, wellbeing economy, circular economy, post-growth economy, regenerative economy and restorative economy.

The AASHE Conference is unique in its scope and scale, and the broad range of sessions ensures that all students, faculty, administrators, and industry professionals that attend will have the opportunity to learn something new and make valuable networking connections. – April Nicklaus, Rutgers University
