Universities for our planet

#UnisForOurPlanet is a campaign to show how universities – and the people within them – are spearheading critical solutions and efforts to tackle climate change. 

Climate change is the biggest threat to humanity. As we face increasing climate concerns, universities are spearheading critical research and technological innovation, facilitating and disseminating essential learning, teaching the next generation of climate experts, supporting wider communities with outreach programmes, protecting vulnerable ecosystems, and more.

Universities are uniting for everyone, everywhere. They are uniting for the small island states facing rising sea levels, for the nations in the global south, for the farmers adapting to higher levels of rainfall - and for the person reading this. 

#UnisForOurPlanet is a campaign to show how universities – and the people within them – are uniting to tackle climate change. In the lead up to the COP26 conference, we collated stories from ACU members to highlight the important work happening across the Commonwealth. 

This campaign is now closed but you can explore climate action stories below.
