Central Michigan Climate Solutions Summit to be Rescheduled in Fall 2020

The Central Michigan Climate Solutions Summit scheduled for March 21 will be postponed until the fall. Dr. Andy Hoffman, Holcim Professor of Sustainable Enterprise at the Ross School of Business and the School of Environment and Sustainability at the University of Michigan, the Summit’s keynote speaker, has committed to the fall event.

The Summit was organized by interested faculty and students at CMU in collaboration with the Mount Pleasant Chapter of Citizens Climate Education to highlight what the university and the community are doing to address impacts of climate change and to further discussion and collaboration on local  solutions. Faculty, students, and university and community organizations as well as businesses and local government offices that are engaging in any sustainable practices, clean energy, or adaptive measures are encouraged to expand the informational tabling that is part of the Summit. Contact mtp.mi.ccl@gmail.com with your interest in participating this fall.

Organizers extend their gratitude to the original sponsors at Central Michigan University which included the Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; The College of Liberal Arts and Social Studies; The College of Science and Engineering; and the Institute for Great Lakes Research.
