A call is open in our commitment for additional university partners, and we are actively discussing this effort with over 20 universities globally at present. Open to additional partners.
Chair and support a network of academic partner institutions committed to building educational curricula around the tools needed to evaluate and integrate SEFA goals.
Make tools and training materials available in open source format for carbon and resource foot-printing, and for modeling and planning low-carbon sustainable energy futures. We will focus on tools tailored for individuals, municipalities, schools, and businesses, but welcome partners to expand the scope further.
Commit to adapting and evolving these tools to make them useful in local contexts worldwide, starting with a process to identify and make available fellowships for young and established academic leaders committed to evolving and utilizing locally these tools to achieve the SEFA objectives.
