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 2020 brings sustainability leaders from around the Pacific Northwest to the University of Oregon. The UO has long been a leader in sustainability in higher education, featuring top-ranked academic programs, leading researchers, sustainably designed buildings, thoughtful operational practices, and passionate, active students. We're excited to open our campus to the top thinkers and doers from around the region. The UO is located in Eugene, Oregon, long a center for environmental and social activism, and a place working hard to become a leading medium-sized sustainable city We encourage this year's participants to continue developing the focus on diversity, equity and inclusion in sustainability while at the same time sharing solutions-oriented best practices. The conference is an ideal setting for students, staff and faculty to come together to strategize, share, and take action across all areas of sustainability. "
