Our Mission

Second Nature is committed to accelerating climate action in, and through, higher education.
We do this by mobilizing a diverse array of higher education institutions to act on bold climate commitments, to scale campus climate initiatives, and to create innovative climate solutions.  We align, amplify, and bridge the sector’s efforts with other global leaders to advance urgent climate priorities.

Our Vision

We envision all of humanity thriving through a healthy relationship with the planet.  We see the higher education sector nurturing this future by applying its distinct strengths in teaching, research, and service towards society’s greater good.  We see Second Nature serving as a critical driver for leaders in higher education that commit to this responsibility.

Our History

Since 1993, Second Nature has worked with over 4,000 faculty and administrators at hundreds of colleges and universities to help make the principles of sustainability fundamental to every aspect of higher education.  Read More About Our History >
