How to mobilize postsecondary institutions to speed climate action

Postsecondary institutions should take steps to move toward net zero emissions by mobilizing their intellectual and institutional capacities, writes John Madden of the University of British Columbia. Reflecting on UBC’s Climate Action Plan 2030, Madden provides a number of strategies for mobilizing the university community – including students, staff, and faculty – on the issue. These include developing governance systems and structures that are able to support climate action, establishing interdisciplinary committees, and embracing engagement from across the university. Madden also says that institutions should consider using investments and carbon pricing to support accelerated climate action and become more resilient.
