Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) Annual Conference

The 2019 AASHE Conference & Expo, themed Co-Creating A Sustainable Economy, will take place in Spokane, Washington from Oct. 27 – 30, 2019.  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.
