AUC Climate Change Initiative

AUC's Climate Change Initiative was established in response to worldwide climate change challenges and the active role academic and research institutions must play in understanding and addressing them. 

About the Initiative

This initiative includes research, student activities, teaching and learning, as well as outreach activities. It draws on AUC’s extensive international network and rests on the academic and research expertise at the University’s departments and research centers. The initiative’s areas of focus are aligned with national and regional climate change and sustainability priorities.

My visit to COP27 has introduced me to a lot of very interesting initiatives and solutions as well as helped me expand my network, learn about many of the leading sustainable businesses of the world and meet great critical minds. It was astounding to me to learn what could be done in a matter of few years if everyone takes a solid stand towards a more sustainable future.
