In response to the urgent challenges presented by global climate change, the world’s leading universities are called on to play a critical role. During the World Economic Forum in 2019, eight world-famous universities jointly launched the Global Alliance of Universities on Climate (GAUC).
Currently, GAUC has 15 member universities, including Australian National University, University of California, Berkeley, University of Cambridge, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Imperial College London, Indian Institute of Science, London School of Economics and Political Science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Sciences Po, Stellenbosch University, University of Tokyo, Tsinghua University, University of Oxford, Columbia University and Yale University.
The Global Alliance of Universities on Climate (GAUC) was formally established on May 29th, 2019.
The mission of the Global Alliance of Universities on Climate is to advance climate change solutions through research, education, and public outreach, and to partner with industry, non-profit and government organizations to promote rapid implementation from local to global scales. GAUC will pursue this mission by promoting exchange and cooperation among member universities and providing leadership of global higher education efforts addressing climate change.
