Call for proposals

Drawing together a diverse group of sustainability practitioners and influencers, the ACTS conference will champion The Power of Partnerships as a driving force for learning institutions to truly lead change for sustainability.

Building on the momentum of the Think Big For Global Goals conference in 2017, this year we draw inspiration from Sustainable Development Goal 17; recognising that a successful approach to leading change for sustainability requires multifaceted levels of cooperation and collaboration.

By embracing inclusive partnerships that are built upon a shared vision and shared goals, both internally and with a diversity of stakeholders, our institutions can inspire and innovate for a healthy and inclusive future for all.
