Second Nature at AASHE Conference 2017

Next week is the AASHE 2017 Conference, and many signatories are traveling to San Antonio. Our partners at AASHE have put together an excellent agenda, covering a wide range of campus sustainability topics!

Signatory representatives, Second Nature staff, and partners are providing many new resources that are relevant to meeting Presidents’ Climate Leadership Commitment and We Are Still In goals on carbon reduction and resilience. If you are not able to make it and would like slides or more information about any of these topics, please let me know, and we can pass on the resources. If students or colleagues from your institution are attending but are not Reporting Platform contacts, please pass on this email to them.

The best opportunity to connect is at the Climate Leadership Commitment Signatory Networking Session on Monday 10/16 at 4:45 – 5:45pm in Riverwalk Room: Salon C. It will include networking with signatory representatives and a year in review. Following the networking session, join us at an informal happy hour at the Riverwalk Yard House Restaurant.
