Duke University’s Heat Policy Innovation Hub recently hosted their inaugural HeatWise Policy Partnership Summit, convening more than 100 leaders from across sectors to identify ways to make communities more heat resilient. The three-day summit included finance and insurance companies, federal and state officials, foundation officers, Duke faculty and community organizers, including our partners at Duke’s Nicholas Institute for Energy, Environment & Sustainability.

“Keeping communities safe from heat’s health threats is among the most pressing challenges humanity faces,” noted Brian Murray, director of the Nicholas Institute. “The HeatWise Policy Partnership leans into Duke University’s institutional strengths, including our convening power, world-class experts in climate and health and our commitment to forging purposeful partnerships.”
