Improve climate research funding

Who's making it happen


Students have expressed frustration at public forums and in comments on OCS and OCJC events as to the lack of opportunities for them to study climate solutions, especially compared to those funding offered for research that furthers fossil fuel interests. Students and academics alike express concern for the relevance of their work in meeting the right public and private circles for having impact, even when solutions are found through research.

We want to learn about departmental financing, publicize climate solutions research at Oxford and demonstrate the gap between student desire for research and research opportunities, and help the university develop materials and showcase work and meet with potential funders.
