Sustainability, Accessibility and Inclusiveness at ISLS 2024
At the ISLS Annual Meeting 2024, we hope to bring scholars from around the world to build knowledge and sustain our community. We strive to host sustainable, inclusive, accessible events that enable all individuals to engage fully.
Show your support by donating to our sustainability and accessibility initiatives
We define sustainability as being pluralistic and inclusive, encompassing factors such as human and ecological health, social justice, secure livelihoods, and a better world for all generations. Recognizing that travel and gatherings associated with in-person conferences place a burden on the planet, ISLS2024 aims to offset some of our impact by this effort. You may help offset conference greenhouse gas emissions from participant travel through a verified program that will reforest marginal land and provide income for families in central America.
- A sponsorship of $25 will help offset flights from North America, South America, and Europe.
- A sponsorship of $50 will help offset flights from Asia, Africa, and Australia.
At ISLS 2024, we hope to foster broader participation of members from marginalized communities in terms of both identity and research. For example, we wish to raise awareness of issues related to planning for participants with diverse needs, with the goal of increasing inclusive processes and practices at this year’s event. We acknowledge that progress towards more equitable and inclusive ISLS events will be incremental and entails a long term commitment. Your financial support will help us take some steps this year towards hosting an accessible and inclusive Conference.
Conference Attendance Support
- A sponsorship of $252 will allow a student to attend this year’s conference.
- A sponsorship of $50 will pay for a student to attend the Conference Dinner.
- A sponsorship of $30 will pay for a student’s lunch.
Together, let’s make our Annual Conference an event for ALL!
