The Washington Higher Education Sustainability Conference (WAHESC) is a regionally-focused opportunity for those teaching, working or studying within higher education to come together and learn about sustainability in academics, operations, and research. Through facilitated conversation, workshops, presentations and networking opportunities, participants will play a role in advancing environmental performance at Washington State institutions of higher education, support regional policy goals and initiatives, and drive the development of a generation of professionals for whom sustainability is a core tenet of their work and life philosophy.
WAHESC is hosted by Western Washington University and benefited greatly through advising from a number of institutions in Washington State.
As a statewide/regional conference, WAHESC will, by its nature, promote a "local" focus. Dialogue will specifically address issues in the Northwest and Washington State, and solutions will be tailored for implementation in our unique political, social, economic and environmental climate. We hope attendees will also take this time to develop and deepen working relationships with peers in the region to advance sustainability on your home campus and the region.
