Join Us Virtually! February 11-12, 2021

The Washington & Oregon Higher Education Sustainability Conference (WOHESC) is a platform for inspiring change, facilitating action, and promoting collaboration related to sustainability within the Cascadia region's higher education institutions. Conversation, workshops, and networking opportunities will empower participants to advance environmental and social justice performance at our regional institutions of higher education.

As a regional conference, WOHESC promotes local focus, with dialogue and action specifically addressing issues in the Cascadia region. Solutions will be tailored for implementation in our unique political, social, economic and environmental climate.
