This 60 minute session will be ted-type quick talks to showcase campus achievements in the past year as a result of the Climate Action Pursuit. Each presenter will share, in 10 minutes, what progress they have made through the Pursuit and how other participants can take action as well. Experts will also share contact information or options to connect after the session, since there will not be an opportunity in this session to take questions or have discussions.

Topic 2: Planning to achieve carbon neutrality and integrating the energy transition into the educational experience of the campus
Topic 3: Committing to net zero portfolios and launching a campus-wide academic curricular program focused on the intersection of climate change and racial justice
Topic 4: “Inside the Presidential cohort” of the Climate Action Pursuit - perspective from a president
