Climate, Change, and What You Can Do at IU

Join us at the Whittenberger Auditorium – IMU at 5pm on Tuesday, February 21st.

Why does Indiana University not have a climate action plan? In the wake of global record temperatures, and seeing and anticipating threatening impacts of climate change, we would assume our university to take a proactive stance on sustaining our campus and the world we live in. However, IU has not signed on to an agreement that almost 700 university and college presidents have signed: The American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC), now known as the Climate Leadership Commitments. The student body has called on IU Administration since 2009 to show climate leadership and “fulfill the promise” on climate, which remains unanswered.

During this highly interactive event, we will explore why IU has not signed, what climate leadership on campus could look like, and how you can make IU more sustainable. Student governments will facilitate this discussion and provide venues for real climate action.

This event is part of Sustain IU Week, a week of events put on by the Student Sustainability Council in cooperation with other groups at IU. This years theme is “A Changing Climate, a Changing Conscience: Morality and Ethics within the Context of Global Climate Change.”
