John Kerry Climate Change Address on Campus

Dear AUC Community,

Tomorrow, AUC will host a special address by John Kerry, US President Joe Biden’s Special Envoy for Climate. We are pleased that AUC continues to serve the same role it has played for more than a century in bringing thought leaders from around the world to discuss topics of global importance.

While we would have wished to invite all the members of the community, we had to limit in-person attendees to ensure we follow strict COVID protocols. In addition to representation from each of our campus constituencies, the address will be live-streamed to give everyone in our community and around the world the opportunity to watch it live. 

As we work to play our part in combating the global challenges brought on by climate change, we’ve formed a Climate Change initiative that will take an interdisciplinary approach and bring together partners from academia, industry, and the public sector in support of Egypt’s plans to host the COP 27 UN Climate Change Conference later this year. I look forward to engaging our community on this important initiative in the months ahead.
