This Way to Sustainability Conference: Resiliency in a Changing World

COVID-19 UPDATE: Given recent travel restrictions and public health precautions, we have made the decision to move the conference to an entirely online format.  The conference will still happen on the days and times scheduled but will be using the online format Zoom for presentations.  

We are working through this transition and more information will be posted here as it is available. Thank you for your time and patience as we work through this very unique situation.  

We hope you are still available to join in what will still be an incredible line up of speakers!

March 26-27, 2020

We are heading into our 15th year of the This Way to Sustainability (TWTS) Conference! TWTS is a nationally recognized, student-run conference focusing on challenges, ideas, solutions, and resiliency in planning our sustainable future. The conference hosts 1,400 participants each year with a variety of respected professionals speaking on the many aspects of sustainability. The goal of the conference is to educate students, staff and faculty, and community members; providing attendees an opportunity to network, discuss, and become more aware of pertinent environmental and social issues we all face.

Registration is live!

All Students (k-12 or any higher education institution with valid student ID):FREE
General 1-day admission (Thursday or Friday): $35
General 2-day admission: $50
Conference Speakers: Complimentary 

Even though the conference is moving to an online format, we will not be able to issue refunds for previously purchased tickets as there is still an expense to host the conference.  We are confident that you will get your money worth!

  1. Environment, Land Planning & Natural Systems
  2. Built Environments, Engineering & Waste Management
  3. Health, Wellness, Diet & Nutrition
