CAMPAIGN: Ceres 2020

CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

Earlier in March, we announced that the Ceres 2020 in New York in-person event was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Since then, we’ve been working hard to reimagine how we can deliver the content we planned that aims to address the challenges investors, companies and policymakers alike face when it comes to sustainability.

We launched our Ceres 2020 digital program last week with three successful sessions, and are excited now to announce the following sessions for April.

To view more details and a list of speakers for each session, visit www.ceres2020.org.

Special Announcement for Students and Professors 

With support from Bank of America, students and professors can access the Ceres 2020 digital program at no cost. If you have a .edu email address and would like complimentary access to these sessions, please contact ceres2020@ceres.org.
