How Universities and Colleges Can Lead on Climate

Your Path To Impact in the Race to Zero: How Universities and Colleges Can Lead on Climate and Transform our Collective Future

Presented in collaboration with the Alliances for Climate Action, Second Nature, EAUC and UNEP-consortium partners of the Race to Zero for Universities and Colleges.

Many higher education institutions have committed to net-zero and established ambitious interim targets aligned with a 1.5C compatible emissions pathway, while others are at various stages of climate action planning and implementation and can benefit from support to do more. Regardless of where your institution is in its climate journey, this webinar is designed to empower your institution with the tools and platforms it needs to accelerate its path to impact.

Tune in to learn about the Race to Zero for Universities and Colleges, powered by the UN Environment, EAUC & Second Nature - to rally credible climate targets, and join other actors under the banner of the UN-backed Race to Zero Campaign.

This webinar will provide you with an overview of the Alliances for Climate Action (ACA), a global initiative of national multi-stakeholder alliances of cities, states, regions, companies, investors, higher education, and others driving 1.5C aligned climate action and ambition in their countries. As an Accelerator Partner of the Race to Zero Campaign, ACA is connecting its members to sector-specific Partner Initiatives of the Campaign to grow the global momentum of institutions with credible net-zero targets, and giving climate leaders the chance to collaborate with other institutions nationally to drive the net-zero carbon transition in their countries.
