Wednesday, September 28, 2022.  3:00 PM. Webinar: The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) Passed; What Does That Mean for the Higher Education Sector?  Tansy Massey-Green, RMI; Ippolyti Dellatolas, MIT; and Tim Carter, Second Nature. Sponsored by Second Nature, RMI, America Is All In. Register here.

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) represents the largest investment in climate solutions in our nation’s history. The institutions in the Climate Leadership Network, and many other higher education institutions who are committed to climate action, have good reason to celebrate this transformative bill. But as with most large pieces of federal legislation, it is difficult to discern the specific ways the higher education sector will benefit from, be impacted by, and can mobilize activity around, the IRA. This webinar will present the major elements of the legislation, and discuss the ways they directly connect with the higher education sector.

Learning Objectives:
- For higher education institutions, learn how the IRA directly benefits you as a higher education institution.
- For individuals at higher education institutions, get an understanding of how to take advantage of these benefits.
- For institutional leaders, get an understanding of how legislation and policy work is an important component in helping to accelerate campus climate action goals.
