Harvard University’s Office for Sustainability and green cleaning products manufacturer Earth Friendly Products hosted the first-ever Harvard Environmental Action & Leadership Summit (HEALS) on Oct. 4.

Held at the Harvard Faculty Club, the youth-led conference featured engaging and interactive panel discussions and workshops with leaders in business, policymaking, and environmental science.

In the face of unprecedented environmental crises, the conference engaged students, faculty, community, and global leaders to move beyond talk and initiate a collective action to protect and promote the planet and human health.

Topics discussed touched on policy change, leadership, and individual action, featuring speakers including Kelly Vlahakis-Hanks, president and CEO of Earth Friendly Products; Heather Henriksen, chief sustainability officer of Harvard University; Robert Stowe, director of the Harvard Project on Climate Agreements and the Harvard Environmental Economics Program; Benjamin Schneer, Professor of Public Policy at Harvard University; Sal DiDomenico, Massachusetts state senator; and Katie Allen, executive director of Algalita Marine Research and Education.
