Global Institutions, Local Impact: Power and Responsibility of Engaged Universities
Keynote speaker to include John F. Kerry – Special US Presidential Envoy for Climate
Registration is now open for the Talloires Network Leaders Conference (TNLC2021) to be held on 30 September – 3 October 2021. Jointly hosted on the virtual campuses of Tufts University’s Tisch College of Civic Life and the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School, the conference is a global gathering of higher education leaders and students from all regions of the world.
Keynote speaker to include John F. Kerry, America’s first Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and the first-ever Principal to sit on the National Security Council entirely dedicated to climate change.
TNLC2021 is a movement-building event that will provide opportunities to critically reflect on the power and responsibility of engaged universities to work together–and in partnership with communities–to sustainably and equitably address global challenges. We have designed the conference to maximize engagement and forge connections, even in a virtual format, including special opportunities for student leadership and participation. Using several interactive technology platforms, the gathering will feature dynamic plenary sessions, highly interactive breakout sessions and workshops, virtual site visits, and thematic networking sessions.
