Planet Forward is partnering with Second Nature to host the Climate Leadership Awards Video Voting Competition. 

All of Second Nature’s Climate Leadership Award Finalists were asked to create a 1-3 minute video highlighting climate innovations on campus. We’re asking our online community to select the most innovative campus.

To vote, scroll down and find the campus you think is the most innovative, and then click the Thumbs Up button for that school. You can vote once a day per computer. If you are on a network where computers share addresses, register for a Planet Forward account to be able to vote.
