AASHE Sustainability Professionals Retreat

June 19, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - June 22, 2017 @ 2:00 pm

The results of the 2016 election are creating new challenges for campus sustainability professionals and we need to up our game. To assist in this process, AASHE is hosting a Sustainability Professionals Retreat designed for and by staff charged with leading institutional transformation for sustainability. Attend this event to leave inspired, renewed and equipped to grow in your work.

Participants will be immersed with 40-50 of your peers for three full days dedicated to advancing your vision, energy, capabilities and support system as a sustainability change agent. This year’s focus is about tapping into your source, building your skills and strengthening your community. You’ll experience:

  • the spaciousness to reflect on your path, purpose, style and methods to harvest powerful personal insights and unlock new reserves of energy.
  • deep discussions and fun exchanges with your peers to learn about a wide range of emerging ideas.
  • building targeted skills in facilitation, organizational design, idea flow, and senior leadership engagement.

In addition, this year we will explore important trends in the higher education and how to position sustainability as a solution driver for key stress points across the sector (enrollment, funding, affordability, relevance to employers etc.).
