Please use CU Boulder’s webform below to let us know that you are interested in participating and to receive registration instructions.
The future is …
With the theme of “The future is …”, this year’s Global Conference on Sustainability in Higher Education reflects the uncertainty about the future that many feel and invites participants to recommit themselves to the urgent work of building a future that is sustainable, equitable, and resilient. We seek to highlight inspiring examples of higher education leadership that empower participants to envision and create such a future. Ultimately, the future is ours to make. Are you committed to leveraging the power of higher education to forge a brighter future? Join us at GSCHE!
Participation is flexible
Live content is available October 12, 13 and 14. On-demand content is available through December 31. Registration must be completed by October 14 to access on-demand content.
In addition to more than 50 educational sessions, this year’s Global Conference on Sustainability in Higher Education features 10 keynote presenters, including:
Heather McGhee will discuss her new book, The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together, with particular emphasis on the way in which racism hurts higher education and limits the prospects for climate action.
Dina Gilio-Whitaker (Colville Confederated Tribes) will draw from her forthcoming book to argue that a sustainable future must simultaneously incorporate Indigenous knowledge and a decolonial ethic of political accountability to Indigenous nations for its ongoing genocidal settler structure.
Tracey Osborne inspired by a recent essay series entitled The Pedagogy of Transition: Educating for the Future We Want, Tracey, along with Dr. Madhavi Venkatesan and Dr. Stephen Sterling, will reflect on the shifts in educational policy and practice necessary to create a sustainable future.
CU Boulder attendees will be provided access free-of-charge. CU Boulder attendees must be current students, faculty or staff with a valid @colorado.edu account. This opportunity is made possible by Vice Chancellor for Infrastructure and Sustainability and the CUSG Environmental Center.
