New Council Aims to Push Climate Change Solutions

September 17, 2014

A group of higher education leaders on Tuesday announced a new initiative to urge colleges and universities to promote climate change solutions. Solution Generation aims to provide new communications tools, research and resources so college and university leaders can educate and engage campus constituents on climate change. Like the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment, Solution Generation wants institutions to commit to reducing greenhouse emissions and being leaders in promoting climate change solutions. The initiative is intended to be a more mainstream platform for progress on climate change projects, where colleges and universities can collaborate with leaders in other sectors, such as health and business. 

Solution Generation was created in collaboration with ecoAmerica’s MomentUs initiative, which aims to increase support for climate change solutions and clean energy across a wide range of industries. It's funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, ClearPath Foundation and the Linden Trust for Conservation.
