Higher Education’s Leading Role in Cross-Sector Climate Action
July 10, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDTFree
For more than a decade, institutions in the Climate Leadership Network have been pursuing carbon neutrality in campus operations, creating new climate solutions through innovative research, and preparing students to solve the urgent climate challenges of the 21st century. But a year ago many schools across the country stepped up to do even more. This webinar will focus on how the higher ed sector has been engaging with government, businesses, and the community to lead on climate. Topics we will discuss include the America’s Pledge and We Are Still In movement one year later, the University Climate Change Coalition’s mission and method of using it’s place-based institutional strengths to drive climate solutions, and a presentation of innovative action from campus resilience assessments completed across the US. This webinar will feature guest speakers from the University of Colorado at Boulder and Washington University in St. Louis.
