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. We are collating stories from ACU members to highlight the important work happening across the Commonwealth. Explore a few of our stories below.
There are multiple ways that you can get involved and support the campaign.
