Washington Higher Education Sustainability Conference

The Theme

The theme for the 2017 conference is "Caring for our Common Home", an echo of the call from Pope Francis in his 2015 encyclical letter, "Laudato Si". Just as Pope Francis called "every living person on the planet" to be mindful of consumption and assert an ethic of care for our planet, WAHESC invites students, faculty, and staff at institutions from across the region to gather around this theme to further a deep conversation of how we are working together and overcoming differences to advance sustainability at our institutions. We look forward to unpacking the meaning and thinking on actions surrounding how we define and practice "care" and what, indeed, is our responsibility to the earth, our common home.
