We are excited to announce six sites that will host the 2016 Climate Leadership Summits! From big cities on the coast to rolling midwestern small towns, students and campus communities nationwide are providing leadership to address energy challenges and climate change. That’s why we partnered with Defend Our Future to elevate and inspire innovative approaches student bodies are taking to make their campuses greener and more sustainable.
We received a pool of tremendous applications and are excited to bring together more than 1,000 student leaders, administrators, businesspeople, and policy officials through the selected summits. Stay tuned as we provide updates and registration information for each summit in the weeks ahead.
The Climate Leadership Summit Schedule:
April 5 – Atlanta Regional, hosted by Georgia State University
April 9 – Wisconsin Statewide, hosted by University of Wisconsin – River Falls
