Tackling Climate Change

Climate change poses an immediate and long-term threat to people and our planet. Universities like Harvard are uniquely equipped to shape the ideas and innovations that will lead the transition to a low-carbon future.

At Harvard, we are acting on climate change through research that occurs across disciplines and throughout the world; through teaching and learning, by providing our students with the tools to confront this issue for generations to come; and on our campus, by modeling an institutional pathway to a healthier, more sustainable community.

Climate change poses an immediate and concrete test of whether we, as members of a university and responsible inhabitants of our planet, will fulfill a sacred obligation: to enable future generations to enjoy, as we are privileged to enjoy, the wonders of life on Earth.
