10 College and University Presidents and Chancellors joined Second Nature at Agnes Scott College for a two-day meeting to discuss Climate Leadership and sign the new Climate Commitment. Together they explored new opportunities in our changing climate landscape, and pledged their commitment to continued work in the areas of carbon mitigation and resilience. These are 10 out of 46 leaders from across the country that pledged to sign this commitment. These 46, in turn are part of a vast network of higher education institutions committed to climate action and innovation. This video is a recording of the 1-hour signing ceremony and press conference. Learn more at: http://secondnature.org/wha...
