Now, Second Nature is inviting the Climate Leadership Network and friends to submit proposals for sessions, workshops, and presentations for the 2017 Presidential Climate Leadership Summit, February 13-15, 2017, in Tempe, AZ.

Audience: Approximately 400 participants, comprised of college and university presidents, chancellors, key sustainability staff including directors, chief business officers, facilities staff and faculty.
