Host an INSS Conference Micro-Site in June 2017: Webinar to Learn More 11/4

Interest Webinar Nov 4 12pm EST

The INTEGRATED NETWORK FOR SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY (INSS) invites universities, non-profits, businesses, departments, faculty, staff, sustainability directors, or graduate students to organize a micro-site for this year’s Social Sustainability conference on June 5, 6, and 7, 2017.

INSS is an interdisciplinary network that explores the social consequences and social remedies to challenging twenty-first century environmental crises. Each year, we host a conference that utilizes a “hub” model in which several physical conference sites are linked together via online software for a set of events. We have participants from all over the world, including MICRO-SITES, or small independent satellite meetings that tune-in to portions of the “main” conference, but also focus on local issues of social sustainability at their respective locations.

Attend the INSS webinar on Friday November 4 at 12pm EST to learn more!

Hosting a micro-site is a low-cost opportunity to engage students and colleagues on the meanings and challenges of social sustainability.
