The Climate Action Pursuit was a year long virtual convening led by Second Nature and IEN to support the process of learning, planning and acting on climate and justice on our campuses, in our communities, and across our society and economy. We brought people together during four milestones in February, June, October and December for flexible virtual programming to equip participants with the tools and resources necessary to help them move forward over the year on their climate goals.

2021 Climate Action Pursuit Experience

The Pursuit brought people together during four milestones for flexible virtual programming (see engagement opportunities below) that equipped participants with the tools and resources necessary to help them move forward during 2021 with their climate goals. Milestone check-ins took place at four points in the year. During each milestone, a compelling agenda of virtual programming – a mix of live and recorded/on-demand – and networking was scheduled over 2-3 days per milestones over the course of the year.

February 24-26, 2021 | June 10-11, 2021 | October 7-8, 2021 | December 9-10, 2021
