Climate Leadership Awards 2013

Open Dates: 
Monday, April 01, 2013 to Thursday, May 02, 2013

For the second straight year, Planet Forward is partnering with Second Nature to host the Climate Leadership Awards. Second Nature, which seeks to create a sustainable society by transforming higher education, has selected the top-20 climate-related ideas from colleges across the country.

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

As with all groups who submit videos to Planet Forward, every school will have the opportunity to be featured in blog posts on The Huffington Post, in our television segments on Bloomberg West, in our webisodes, or in other public outreach opportunities.
