The campuses leading Chevrolet's Clean Energy Campus Campaign originally convened the #CleanEnergyU dialogue. These academic leaders were the first to access a new source of carbon capital to help accelerate their clean energy leadership. It’s now become a platform that serves to humanize climate change and connect millennials, climate leaders and businesses on an issue that we all can address.
