Call for Proposals
Smart and Sustainable Campuses Conference

Smart and Sustainable Campuses Conference aims to be the best participant-driven conference you can attend.  They challenge you to embed community building methods and facilitation into your presentations, workshops, and interactions with each other. Transition from PowerPoint and unleash your collaborative selves with World Caf├ęs and Appreciative Inquiry, using your gathered brain trust to find solutions to collective challenges. This year they will envision new possibilities, expand our communities and learn through experimentation as we all advance the goal of thriving people, places and planet.
SSCC sets itself apart from other conferences by creating a program that features in-depth presentations and workshops. Sessions are 50 and 80-minutes in length allowing for dialogue and shared learning. Proposals are also accepted for poster presentations.
The 80-minute interactive sessions will allow facilitators and attendees to dig deeper into a particular topic area using active and participatory learning strategies. 50-minute presentation sessions allow more time for questions and contributions by attendees.
Proposals due October 30, 2016.
