Portland State’s BikeHub, Solutions Generator, and Electric Avenue are just a few of the green innovations that have put PSU in the running for this year’s Second Nature Climate Leadership Awards

Second Nature is a nonprofit organization started by Secretary of State John Kerry, Teresa Heinz, and Tony Cortese to transform education for a more sustainable society.

“It is critically important for students to learn sustainable practices by seeing them, both inside and outside of the classroom,” said David Hales, president of Second Nature. “PSU embodies the kind of leadership and innovation that will infuse their students’ careers for decades to come.” 

As a finalist for the award, PSU is going up against 19 other colleges and universities in a public video voting competition throughout the month of April.
