Innovation, Implementation, and Workforce Development for Sustainability


The NSS will host a national conference to bring together academics, students, and practitioners within the field of sustainability to build consensus on the key principles, competencies, capacities, frameworks, and substance of sustainability as both a scholarly realm and as a rapidly expanding field of practice across the private, public, and nonprofit sectors. The NSS focuses on the dialogue and community building to support professional and scholarly activities needed to support sustainability transformations across sectors.

This first national conference will showcase work that advances sustainability innovation, closes the implementation gap, and supports workforce development at all levels.
