Join Us for WOHESC 2020 at the University of Oregon March 2-4, 2020

At the end of February, over 600 passionate individuals came together at the University of Washington in Seattle for WOHESC 2019 to learn, connect and strategize for the future of climate justice in higher education. Our 2019 event was an immense success thanks to our attendees, speakers, sponsors, and stakeholder partners who helped us build and collaborate on our outstanding conference program focused on issues of equity, sustainability, and development within higher education. View our 2019 Event Report to learn more about the issues that were covered, who was there and our results.

"WOHESC can be a powerful driver of change in our region. By bringing together students, faculty, staff and other stakeholders to exchange ideas about the current work on sustainability, social justice and diversity, we can propel the discussions to create real, collaborative solutions to seemingly unsurmountable challenges. WOHESC elevates existing practices and while creating a new pathway for advancing sustainability and diversity in higher education."
Claudia Frere-Anderson | Director, University of Washington Sustainability
