Wesleyan President Michael Roth accepted Wesleyan’s award, and made comments after the presentation. The Connecticut Climate Change Leadership Awards Program was developed by the Governor’s Steering Committee on Climate Change to recognize individuals and organizations that have taken exemplary action in the past year to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to climate change, increase awareness of climate change solutions and Connecticut action on climate change, and recognize individuals who make a significant impact by engaging a larger group to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
