UBC, UoGuelph, U of T, Sciences Po collaborate to launch CARE program through $10.44M grant

The University of British Columbia, the University of Guelph, the University of Toronto, and France-based Sciences Po have collaborated to launch the Climate Adaptation, Resilience and Empowerment (CARE) Program. The program—which is supported by a five-year, $10.44M grant from Fondation DRG—includes four components: a multi-campus climate leadership course; interdisciplinary courses run between the universities; on-campus and in-field applied learning; and advocacy and communications. It will provide graduate exchanges between Canada and France with a focus on accelerating climate action through hands-on academic, policy, and leadership training. Program participants will have access fellowships to enable student and faculty exchanges as well as scholarships for master’s level studies.
