The Acceleration Fund: Accelerating Climate Action Planning From Campus to Community

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In spring 2020, Second Nature launched the first round of the Acceleration Fund, an effort to support innovative cross-sector climate action activities driven by colleges and universities. This panel discussion will unite colleagues from across the U.S. who leveraged their Fund to accelerate climate action and resilience planning and look back on progress made since. Join us to explore best practices in advancing this work in diverse college and university contexts, including models for student engagement and effective techniques to engage community partners.
