Mount Holyoke College is proud to announce its involvement as a Host Institution Sponsor for AASHE’s Global Conference on Sustainability in Higher Education (GCSHE). This virtual event, streaming live over three days (October 18, October 26 and November 3), will deliver live interactive sessions, inspiring keynote presenters and engaging networking opportunities for innovative professionals and campus change agents. Now in its third year, the conference reaches a global audience of sustainability practitioners, faculty, students and administrative personnel in higher education.
As more reports highlight the catastrophic effects of climate change, we have reached a point where those effects are irreversible — unless we make immediate, rapid, large-scale reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. With a theme of “The Urgency of Now,” this year’s conference is a clarion call for transformative sustainability solutions that match the speed and scale of our challenges.
“Our host institutions truly champion sustainability advancements in higher education. We are grateful to work with these member colleges and universities that directly contribute to the success of the conference and the sustainability movement as a whole,” said AASHE Executive Director Meghan Fay Zahniser.
