2018 AASHE Conference & Expo
October 1 - October 5
We stand at a key moment in history. As sustainability challenges intensify and the window for action grows smaller every day, the need for leadership by higher education is greater than ever. With a theme of “Global Goals: Rising to the Challenge,” the 2018 AASHE Conference & Expo will examine the critical role of higher education in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Adopted by the world’s governments in September 2015, the 17 SDGs establish ambitious global targets to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all by 2030.
Plus, SustainUS Executive Coordinator Garrett Blad is the #AASHE2018 Student Summit keynote speaker. As a climate advocate, organizer and community-builder, Garrett will bring his international experience and ability to corral the millennial generation to several hundred students during this all-day event.
