We are in the middle of a climate crisis that must be addressed on every level--global, federal, state, city, and at our own university.
We must act now to do everything we can to minimize climate catastrophes, promote sustainability and protect our people. This year’s round of wildfires, hurricanes, floods, record high temperatures, droughts, and climate migrations provide a clarion call for all of us to ACT NOW.
How can City College be part of the climate justice movement?

  • Promoting resilience, including infrastructure, renewable energy, clean water, waste management, healthy food production & service, heating & cooling
  • Working collaboratively with neighbors in our broader communities
  • Creating “green schools” and models of environmental and social transformation
  • Developing educational and training programs to spread information about the climate crisis, climate justice, and to prepare us for climate jobs and a future of climate change
