Programming

The Brandeis Sustainability Committee will also be updating Brandeis' Climate Action Plan, taking into account Brandeis' forthcoming decarbonization study.

About the year

In its 2020 draft climate action plan and recommendations to the president, the President's Task Force on Campus Sustainability recommended that Brandeis undertake a year-long effort to engage the entire community, including alumni, in curricular and co-curricular programming that catalyzes and deepens our understanding of climate change as a social justice issue. The focus will be to expand our dedication to tackling this urgent problem in courses, course projects, student events, guest speakers, student activism, and more.

Taking inspiration from Smith College’s Year on Climate Change (2019-2020), and the Brandeis International Business School’s Business of Climate Change Week, we will leverage the strengths of existing institutional events through partnerships with key campus stakeholders connecting with existing interest groups on campus.
