HOST AN INSS CONFERENCE
MICRO-SITE in JUNE 2017
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.

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

Sign up to be a microsite using this form by March 16, 2017.
Leading up to the conference in June, INSS organizers will host pre-conference calls to test communication technology. The earlier you sign up as a microsite, the more you can be involved, if you want.
Sometime between June 5-7, 2017. You can make it as ‘micro’ or ‘macro’ as you want and develop your own sub-theme. The details are up to you. All you need is a reliable internet connection and a space to meet.
Afterwards, INSS organizers will ask you for feedback and a photo of the group.
Stay tuned for more announcements and ways to participate in the June 2017 annual conference!
