Western joins UC3 to accelerate solutions to climate change

October 28, 2021
Western University has announced that it has joined the University Climate Change Coalition (UC3). The coalition aims to accelerate climate change solutions both locally and globally, and to teach, research, and build community resistance. As part of the UC3, Western will participate in initiatives such as mobilizing resources and expertise, scaling campus initiatives to impact the broader community, collaborating with global leaders on climate solutions, and hosting climate forums. “Research-intensive universities are well-positioned to share their best sustainability ideas, practices and policies with each other and with the communities where they reside,” said Lynn Logan, vice-president (operations and finance) at Western. “That’s what the UC3 does so well, and we’re pleased we can contribute to – and learn from – some of the best of our peers.” Western (ON)
