Improve Access to Teaching on Climate Issues and Solutions Across the University

Who's making it happen


Climate change will impact everything and everyone in the coming decades but currently very few departments use their resources to help students think about climate solutions through the lens of their particular field and this is both a waste of resources and a disservice to students who will be under-prepared for the major transitions to come and how they might use expertise in their respective fields to adapt.

Students need to prepare for a future under climate change and any department that fails at touching the issue is not preparing students for the future. 

We want to host events and attend a series of meetings with students, professors and departmental leads  to persuade at least three departments to include climate challenges and solutions in their core curriculum.  Then introduce papers on the topic in academic affairs committee and at the conference of colleges.
