The North Carolina Leadership Forum—launched by Duke University’s Sanford School of Public Policy in 2016—provides an opportunity for civic, business and political leaders from across North Carolina to discuss issues central to the future of our state. The forum provides a venue for North Carolina leaders to discuss the nature of the challenges, to understand different points of view about how to address them, and to advance mutually acceptable solutions that improve the lives of North Carolinians.

Key partners in this year’s forum are the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions and the Duke University Energy Initiative, who are providing current research findings and critical expertise to inform forum participants about topics relating to fossil fuels and renewable energy, climate change, environmental impacts, regulations, economics and politics.
