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.

Seeing beyond the horizon has always been higher learning’s special concern. Universities thrive because of an insatiable yearning to understand ourselves and the world. We mold minds capable of innovation because we are able to imagine a world different from the one we live in.
