The ACTS Conference, now 21 years young, will continue it’s long standing tradition of bringing champions from campus communities across Australasia and the Pacific together to share and inspire transformative actions toward a sustainable future for people and planet.

As a sector our potential to not just solve for challenges of today, but to regenerate for a truly sustainable future, is limitless. We explore this potential through across four days of conference programming, with a particular focus on leading through transformational governance and values, innovating, educating and enabling for change, and raising the voices of indigenous peoples that have nurtured our lands and waters for thousands of generations.
