The information provided below is intended to serve as a guide to our Call for Educational Content. This call for content is now open. Share your sustainability expertise! Submit by March 26, 2021.

  • What is the purpose of the Call for Educational Content?
    This combined Call for Educational Content provides a streamlined way for you to share your experience, knowledge and skills in higher education sustainability at the Global Conference on Sustainability in Higher Education (GCSHE) or via AASHE’s other educational programs (e.g., webinars, virtual workshops and online courses).
  • What information is needed to submit for the Call for Educational Content?

    1. Read the Call for Proposals packet which will give you an idea of the type of sessions and content we are showcasing at the conference.
    2. Use the Proposal Template to build your proposal, especially if you are collaborating with others on the submission.

  • What is the timeline of the Call for Educational Content?
    The 2021 Call for Educational Content will open in early February and close in late March. Review and acceptance of the GCSHE proposals will start after the submission deadline of March 26 (deadline will not be extended), while review and acceptance of AASHE’s other educational programs will happen on a rolling basis starting mid-February.
  • Who is the audience of AASHE educational events?
    The typical audience that participates in AASHE educational events is drawn from the campus sustainability community. It includes faculty, students, sustainability staff and executives, as well as community members and businesses. The audience tends to be diverse both geographically and in the level of experience.
  • Do I need to be an AASHE member to submit a proposal?
    For conference proposals you do not need to be a member to submit or present, however, at least one presenter is required to be affiliated with an AASHE member organization in order to propose an AASHE webinar, workshop or course. If you are interested in becoming a member, please review the range of benefits that come with membership and contact membership@aashe.org or (888) 347-9997 to get started.
  • How do I submit a proposal?
    During the Call for Educational Content, all proposals for the annual conference, webinars, virtual workshops and courses are accepted through a single online submission form. If the call is open, more details will be available on the main AASHE Education page.
  • Is there a limit of how many presenters can be associated with a proposal?
    Yes, we accept up to four presenters (or one submitter and four presenters) per submission. You will have the option to substitute presenters if needed.
  • May businesses propose educational content?
    We require that businesses who present an educational session include at least one higher education representative in the session to help make the content applicable to our audience. NOTE: Presentations cannot be sales pitches. If you are a supplier of products or services, please be sure your session content is based upon a relevant topic, concept or idea – not one of your products, services or proprietary information. Only AASHE Business Leader Members can submit for a webinar.
  • Will my proposal change if it is accepted?
    As we consider your proposal, we may have ideas for a different scope or focus of the proposed content that will be discussed with you. Presenters will have the opportunity to provide feedback, but acceptance of certain topics may depend upon the presenter’s willingness and ability to modify the original idea. Please note that all proposed presenters may not be selected to present the content outlined in the submission.
