University-City Collaborations on Sustainability

Resource

Climate change can be effectively addressed at a local, rather than national, scale.

In the absence of leadership from the federal government, universities and local governments are stepping up in unison to ensure their communities continue to be resilient in the face of change and uncertainty caused by global climate change. To ensure climate action goals are met, a growing number of cities and universities are partnering to implement best-practice sustainability initiatives and policies in an ambitious, timely, and integrated manner. This website showcases these partnerships through a series of case studies.
