The Washington Oregon Higher Education Sustainability Conference (WOHESC) is, self described, “a platform for inspiring change, facilitating action, and promoting collaboration related to sustainability within the region’s higher education institutions”. Each year WOHESC hosts a number of conversations, workshops, and networking opportunities to help facilitate better environmental practices in Oregon and Washington State institutions for higher education.
At this year’s 2018 regional conference (Hosted by Portland State University), WOHESC’s events will highlight issues within the Pacific Northwest with presented solutions tailored for our political, social, economic, and environmental climate. WOHESC is hosting a number of informative events this February at their 2018 conference open for student registration, as seen below.
