In 2023, This Is Planet Ed at the Aspen Institute convened the Higher Ed Climate Action Task Force. Composed of students, faculty, college presidents, state higher education system leaders, policymakers, researchers, and more, the task force came together to chart a course for the higher education sector to reach its full potential in building our societal capacity to address climate change. On August 1st, we will celebrate the launch and release of the Higher Ed Climate Action Plan at the University of Maryland, College Park and with stakeholders in Washington, DC. For more information about the launch, please contact and to access the plan, please visit on August 1st.
