Climate Leadership Awards

The annual Second Nature Climate Leadership Awards recognize innovative and advanced leadership in sustainability, climate mitigation, and resilience at signatory campuses of the Climate Leadership Commitments. They do so based on demonstrated advances in innovation, embedded opportunities, and student preparedness with relation to sustainability and climate action.

Second Nature is partnering with the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Center for Green Schools for the 6th annual Second Nature Climate Leadership Awards. Award winners will be recognized as part of the 2015 Greenbuild Leadership Awards Program on November 19 in Washington, DC, benefiting from global publicity opportunities.
