Universities can be powerful allies and are uniquely placed to address the climate crisis but have untapped potential. This panel discussion brings together experts from several institutions to illuminate novel pathways for engagement and action by asking: 

  • How are universities held accountable for combating climate change? 
  • What are the emerging trends and best practices driving climate action in our universities? 
  • How can partnerships, innovation, leadership and resources be better aligned? 
  • How should leaders balance accountability to local and global constituents, and across other priorities such as social justice?
