The HOPES Conference is an annual event, held every spring by the Ecological Design Center, a student group at the University of Oregon. Inaugurated in 1994, the conference is an opportunity for students, faculty, community members, and visiting scholars to discuss the relationship between ecology and various design disciplines, and how this connection can produce sustainable solutions to contemporary problems.

The conference consists of a combination of panels, keynote speakers, workshops, exhibitions, and excursions. Past topics addressed during the conference include: environmental literacy, food sustainability issues, religion and the environment, product innovation, and biomimicry. Over the past decade the conference has brought such luminaries as Shigeru Ban, Sim Van der Ryn, Lola Sheppard, Sean Ahlquist, Neri Oxman, Carlo Ratti, Steve Badanes, Francois Roche, David Orr, John Schaeffer, Stephen Kellert, and Clare Cooper Marcus to the University of Oregon campus.

HOPES is an annual, student-run, sustainability and design conference in early Spring. We have weekly meetings throughout Fall and Winter where students have the opportunity to participate and contribute to the upcoming conference. This conference exists to give every student a chance to bring their favorite artist, designer, writer, educator, engineer, scientist, etc to the University of Oregon

We will spend the majority of our first three meetings brainstorming and discussing our theme for this year, so get involved early! Students have the ability to earn credit for their involvement in the HOPES conference. For further questions regarding academic credit with HOPES, please email: Kassia Dellabough at kassia@uoregon.edu or call her at (541) 346-2621.
