The CSIS Energy & National Security Program is pleased to host The Hon. Janet Napolitano (President, University of California), The Hon. Dr. Kristina M. Johnson (Chancellor, The State University of New York), and Dr. Timothy Carter (President, Second Nature) for a discussion on the recent launch of the University Climate Change Coalition (UC3), the role of research universities in the development of climate action plans, and their own imperatives for a more sustainable energy system.

This spring, UC3 was launched by 13 research university systems in the United States, Canada, and Mexico to mobilize their resources and expertise to inform and facilitate climate solutions in partnership with businesses, local communities, cities, and states.  The coalition will utilize its research base and multidisciplinary approaches to craft innovative climate action plans, develop new energy technologies, and advance climate science.  UC3 will work in partnership with Second Nature’s Climate Leadership Network, a group of hundreds of colleges and universities that have committed to take action on climate change and sustainability actions.
