This Way to Sustainability Conference XIII will take place on March 15th – 16th in Chico,California, U.S. The Institute for Sustainable Development and the Associated Students of CSU, Chico would like to welcome you to our 13th annual This Way to Sustainability Conference. This year’s conference theme, “When will climate neutrality become our climate reality?,” recognizes that we are increasingly confronting new global socioeconomic and environmental challenges. This conference represents a time to reflect on and explore innovative ideas, grounded in sustainable development principles, which can help guide us through the uncertainties of our shared future. We encourage you to join in open conversation, learn from each other, and build new friendships and professional associations. During the next two days, we will explore collaborative and interdisciplinary solutions to unsustainable practices; to that end, we have organized cross-disciplinary conference tracks, investigating the interface between environmental, cultural, economic, and social concerns. We look forward to hearing the perspectives you bring to our shared hopes and vision for a sustainable future.
This year’s topics include: Water Resources, Climate Impacts & Solutions, Food & Agriculture, Lifestyles, Health & Wellness, Energy & the Environment, Infrastructure & Transportation, Laws, Policies & Business, Community Partnerships & Action, Educating for Resilience, and Student Engagement.
