The conference, hosted by Tufts University’s Tisch College of Civic Life and the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School, is scheduled for Thursday, September 30 through Sunday, October 3, 2021 and will bring together university, nonprofit and community leaders from around the world.

Through interactive workshops and plenary sessions with a diverse group of speakers and facilitators, the virtual conference will explore how universities can contribute to a healthier, safer and more sustainable world; how to assess that impact; and how to strengthen it. Together, participants will engage in critical reflection and dialogue, share ideas and build collaborations for action on important and interrelated issues, including:

Pandemic Recovery and Resilience

Conflict and Inequality

Climate Justice

 Civic Engagement Futures.

Harvard President Larry Bacow, Tufts President Tony Monaco and President Nieves Segovia of Universidad Camilo Jose Cela will open the conference; and Secretary John Kerry, U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, will deliver keynote remarks.
