Call for Session Proposals

2021 Climate Action Pursuit: Request for Proposals

Thank you to everyone who submitted a session proposal for consideration for the June Milestone.

Based on what we heard during the Pursuit sessions in February, the June Milestone will focus on workshops and action-oriented sessions and technical solutions that cut across the themes. 

Although we are no longer accepting proposal submissions for the June 2021 Milestone, you can still read through the application process below to better understand it for future reference.  

Submitting a proposal means you will get to contribute your expertise to the Pursuit. Strong sessions will help people across our networks – in higher education, finance, climate solutions, nonprofits, and government – face today’s intersecting crises and accomplish their climate, resilience, and justice goals.

How to Submit a Session Proposal
We recommend planning out your proposal first, prior to visiting the online proposal submission form.  We have a pdf copy of what the submission form will look like to help you.

Once you have planned out your proposal, you can enter it into the actual online proposal submission form to officially submit it!  The form is a short set of questions to lay out the concept for your session – if accepted, we will provide a session planning template to you, to fully develop the session along with relevant speakers/facilitators.
