Higher Ed Climate Action Task Force Listening Session VI: How can policy and organizing scale impact?

The Higher Ed Climate Action Task Force aims to accelerate higher education’s already impressive progress on climate, create an overarching framework for the role of higher education in advancing solutions, and identify policies to scale climate action across the sector. The Task Force, co-chaired by Commissioner of Higher Education for Louisiana, Dr. Kim Hunter Reed and the Chancellor of the California State University system, Dr. Mildred García, includes a diverse group of leaders from across the higher education and climate fields.

Over the course of this year, the Higher Ed Climate Action Task Force has been hosting a virtual listening tour to better understand the work currently occurring and the opportunity to scale action across the sector. The task force will turn next to draft an action plan grounded in what is learned from these sessions with recommendations for institutions, systems, and policymakers.

The Sixth listening session will highlight the opportunity to leverage organizing and policy to scale action in higher education.
