2009 ACUPCC Climate Leadership Summit

August 13, 2009

More than 250 leaders in higher education joined us for the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment 2009 Climate Leadership Summit in Chicago on August 13-14, 2009. The participants included college and university presidents, facilities directors, sustainability directors, business officers, and others. Former President Clinton presented a rousing keynote address in which he congratulated the higher education sector for taking the lead in fighting climate change, but said that we’re merely “piddling around” compared to what we could and should be doing to help society join the effort. Several other notable speakers inspired us with their presentations as well. See below for other helpful links.
