The 2019 Higher Education Climate Leadership Summit, presented by Second Nature and the Intentional Endowments Network, is the premier 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.
In this video, panelists discuss the mission of higher education and the cross-sector role in responding to the urgency of the climate crisis.
