Action for the Climate
The University of Edinburgh will be supporting and delivering a range of events throughout the academic year 2015/16 to raise public awareness of the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21/CMP11).
Edinburgh Action for the Climate will harness the expertise of the University’s many academics currently conducting ground-breaking research into areas such as carbon capture and storage and renewable energy.
The University’s aim is to become a hub within the wider city for the exchange of ideas and opinions about how best to tackle one of the world’s great global challenges.
