Humanity faces a series of intensifying and interrelated social and ecological crises. Solving these crises requires a holistic transformation: a shift from an extractive economy to a regenerative economy. With the theme of “Mobilizing for a Just Transition,” this AASHE conference will focus on centering justice within this transformation and ensuring that it leaves no one behind. We seek to encourage higher education leaders to reflect and act on the Just Transition Principles articulated by the Climate Justice Alliance and to spotlight inspirational examples of institutions championing this work.
Many sessions and keynotes will be offered, both live and on demand. Check out the schedules:
