Higher Education Climate Leadership Summit

The Higher Education Climate Leadership Summit, hosted by Second Nature and the Intentional Endowments Network, is the premier annual gathering of higher education leaders committed to addressing inequality and the climate crisis. The summit took place at the University of Miami this year, and all participants, from sustainability staff to leadership, engaged in a fruitful exchange—speaking to climate change challenges and how to collectively achieve carbon neutrality (read the News@TheU article).
