UW seattle
University of Washington, Seattle Undergraduate inspired environmental awareness and action through three pillars: education, activism, and career development. The Chapter worked to advocate for a more sustainable campus, organizing climate actions that challenged their university to divest from fossil fuels and invest in a comprehensive sustainability and climate curriculum. Their efforts directly resulted in the first-ever sustainable finance course. The chapter's advocacy and drive is exemplified through their Climate Solutions Summit which combined a case competition focused on clean energy deployment with a conference featuring climate industry professionals. Their case competition featured 16 student teams focused on accelerating residential decarbonization. Check out their highlight video here.


Georgia Institute of Technology Scheller

Georgia Institute of Technology - Scheller College of Business Graduate sent sixteen of their student members to Austin, Texas to participate in the ClimateCAP conference, the premier learning conference for MBA students invested in the intersection of environmental advocacy and business. This opportunity brought MBA students from across the country together to foster greater understanding for sustainable business practices and contributed to building and strengthening their Net Impact chapter reach. They leveraged this reach by collaborating with Terry College School of Business and Emory University's Goizueta Business School to host a conversation engaging students on the world of sustainability. Their focus on community and advocacy propelled them to invite speakers from across Atlanta government and nonprofits to speak about institutional and structural impediments to equity in their community and encouraged students to examine their place in dismantling those systems. They then hosted a Climate Innovation Tech Panel with the Tech Club where industry leaders working in energy VC, Microsoft, carbon accounting, and food recovery spoke to students about their experience.

Boston Professional
Boston Professional launched a Career Profile Series on their Net Impact Boston blog, interviewing professionals in the environmental and social impact field. They also hosted a number of career workshops, panels, networking events, informal discussions and knowledge sharing events to help equip members to find a purposeful and meaningful career within the larger environmental and social impact field. Some of the panels included a Landing Your First Impact Job event, Racial Equity and Justice Learning Group discussions, and Sustainability Breakfasts. Check out their highlight video here


Delhi University Undergraduate focused their efforts on bridging gaps in awareness, accessibility, and resources for environmental and social justice in their campus and local community. They created strategic partnerships with other student & philanthropic institutions such as Deepalaya, Enactucs, Relinns Technologies, Soch, and the Utkrishta Foundation, which allowed them to play a pivotal role in fostering collective growth and solidarity within their university community and beyond. Delhi University Chapter was able to engage over 1,000 students and community members through more than 17 events ranging from online skill building sessions to in person youth engagement projects. They excelled in their flagship Internship program recruiting 30 interns and over 40 volunteers. Check out their highlight video here.


Lilongwe Professional

Lilongwe, Malawi Professional impacted over 1,500 community members across two different regions in 2022 and 2023. They have accomplished this reach by conducting outreach site competitions, engaging community members with accessible experiential education programs, and partnering with organizations like Sustainable Solutions for Life and the Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural resources. They have been extremely effective in their educational outreach, most notably by applying a participatory learning approach that has allowed them to reach and capacity build with a range of people - including setting up a demonstration plot as a sustainable agriculture learning platform through doing and observation in a community that is 60% illiterate.
