History of the Newsletter

The ACUPCC Implementer was launched in October 2008 as a monthly resource for campuses working to implement the American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment.  The ACUPCC Implementer focused specifically on challenges and leadership opportunities across the ACUPCC network, and provided invaluable insights into best-practices around greenhouse gas reporting, climate action planning, student engagement, financing, green building, and education for sustainability.

The Implementer - Second Nature monthly newsletterIn order to better meet the expanding needs of the ACUPCC campuses, and other higher education partners working to transform operations, curriculum, and community partnerships for a sustainable future, Second Nature re-designed the monthly newsletter in 2013 to provide resources and educational updates across a variety of topics, including ACUPCC implementation, financing renewable energy and climate projects on campus, capacity-building support for minority-serving and under-resourced institutions, climate resilience programming, and ways to leverage connections across higher education to accelerate learning and change.
