  Time:2016-02-12 
The collective voice of the world’s universities, colleges and students will be heard at COP21 when the United Nations Climate Change Conference takes place in Paris, France during the first week of December 2015. The Open Letter will urge Ministers and Governments to acknowledge and strengthen the research and education role that universities and colleges play in addressing climate change.

Addressed to COP21 Ministers and Governments, the letter also calls for more specific measures to be taken such as showcasing universities and colleges as living laboratories for climate change adaptation and mitigation, increasing support for trans-disciplinary learning, teaching and research approaches, and using university and college campuses and operations as a leverage agent to accelerate the transition to clean energy sources.
