Building a Network of Sustainable Colleges & Universities with AASHE's Julian Dautremont

The Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education has been helping higher education institutions not only think about climate change and sustainability in regard to their own campuses but also connecting and coordinating these individual campus efforts across its global member network of 900 colleges and universities. Established in 2005, AASHE’s goal is to “inspire and catalyze higher education to lead the global sustainability transformation.” It does this by offering professional learning, mentorship programs, conferences and events, and other sustainability-related services to the faculty, administrators, staff and students who are trying to drive sustainability innovation on the campuses of AASHE’s member institutions.

My guest on this episode is AASHE’s Director of Programs, Julian Dautremont, a long-time leader in the higher education sustainability community and one of AASHE’s co-founders. Julian and I discuss the history of AASHE, some of the work the organization is helping facilitate among its global network of colleges, and how higher education is doing in leading the global sustainability transformation.
