Call for Proposals for Speaking, Award Applications, and Poster Show

Deadline: 3/13/2020

The California Higher Education Sustainability Conference (CHESC), which will be July 7th-10th, 2020 at UC Santa Barbara, is excited to hear about innovative new practices and policy interventions, research related to campus sustainability, and new ideas for infusing climate change and sustainability into the curriculum.  CHESC is especially excited to hear from staff, faculty, and students from colleges and universities about how they are creating change on their campuses as well as lessons learned through their efforts.

CHESC brings in almost 1,000 attendees from California Community Colleges, California State University, University of California, and private colleges and universities in California.  In operations since 2002, CHESC provides an important venue for cross-system best practice sharing, partnership building, and strategic conversations.

Please consider joining CHESC 2020 as a speaker, award winner, and/or poster presenter.  To reduce the workload of our applicants and create an easier to navigate process, there is only one application this year. Through this one application, you can submit your work for an award, speaking opportunity, and/or poster.

Details of the Call for Proposals and topic areas for this year’s event can be found at the CHESC call for proposals page.
