Higher Education Climate Leadership Summit
February 23, 2020 - February 25, 2020
The Higher Education Climate Leadership Summit, presented by Second Nature and the Intentional Endowments Network, is a gathering of a select group of higher education leaders committed to driving our nation’s climate action. As the world looks to 2020 to update emissions reductions targets under the Paris Climate Agreement, the summit will be an opportunity for the higher education sector to take stock of its own progress and explore ways to scale local climate leadership to meet the global goals by working across institutions and across sectors.
At the 2020 summit, participants will learn about cutting-edge solutions and ideas during direct, next-level conversations. Cross-sector teams from colleges and universities will discuss how they are implementing the eight guiding principles that framed the 2019 summit’s Call to Action. Participants can also expect to collaborate within an action-oriented, peer learning environment, to build a network of allies and partners for the long term, and to connect with experts in clean energy, finance and sustainable investing, climate science, diversity, equity, and inclusion, sustainability policy, community development, and more.
