Implementation Liaison Leadership Circle

The Implementation Liaison (IL) Leadership Circle is a group of champions who have implemented innovative sustainability and climate action strategies on their campuses to overcome challenges and create an institutional framework to advance their community toward a sustainable future.

The IL Leaders provide peer-to-peer support to individuals responsible for implementing the ACUPCC at signatory institutions. They are committed to sharing their expertise and knowledge with the ACUPCC network in the effort to accelerate the collective learning towards climate disruption solutions. For information on the criteria, structure and roles and responsibilities of committee volunteers, please see the ACUPCC Implementation Liaison Leadership Circle (PDF).

If you would like to connect with an IL Leader or have questions, please email acupcc@secondnature.org with subject: IL Leadership Circle.
