Check out our new Emory Climate Talks website HERE!
We have come to a point where universities play a unique role at the frontlines of climate change. Today, Emory University is part of a select group of institutions in the U.S., sending delegations to the annual climate negotiations, strengthening research on global climate change, and taking an active role in our communities. This was possible because Emory administrators, faculty and students worked together to build the university’s role on climate. As I mentioned in my remarks at COP23 in Bonn, higher education brings an important voice to efforts on climate change. I hope to build on past successes and grow together with partners on our campus and at other institutions. This website is the centerpiece for our students to showcase their experiences and engagement on climate change. We hope you will enjoy it, use its resources to gain insight, and help us start more climate dialogues at home and around the world.
