UNSW is proud to have founded the International Universities Climate Alliance. UNSW has a strong heritage of expertise in climate science and sustainability. This collaboration harnesses the research and knowledge of universities across the globe, providing the robust evidence base on which policy and action can be founded. Our planet is at a critical point and the time to act is now.

PROF ATTILA BRUNGSVice-Chancellor and President, UNSW Sydney

Universities have a responsibility to serve the global community, to help it meet the most complex challenges facing humanity. My hope is that this Alliance, by bringing together the best minds in the world, will find a way to stem the existential threat of climate change.

The universities in the Alliance are training the next generation of climate researchers. This global Alliance will provide support, collaboration, and development of these researchers that crosses boarders. Climate change is a global issue and collectively we will produce our future climate leaders.

The University of Hong Kong supports the Climate Alliance as a vehicle for promoting research into climate change and its effects. Our climate recognises no borders and so an international effort harnessing the innovative research of our universities to tackle critical issues such as greenhouse gas emissions is needed.
