There’s still time to organise activities for Global Climate Change Week 2017 (Oct 9-15). Here are a few suggestions, with links to some examples universities organised for GCCWeek in 2015 and 2016.
- Panel discussions on one or another aspect of climate change (like this one at North Western University (South Africa), this one at the University of Zanjan (Iran), and this one at the University of California Berkeley (USA))
- Divestment events (like this one at the University of New South Wales (Australia), and this one at the University of East Anglia (UK)) (for information about divestment see 350.org)
- Meetings with local groups fighting climate change like this event at Willamette University (USA)
- Movie showings (such as The Age of Consequences, Chasing Ice, Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Sequel, and many more)
For more ideas for activities see the links given here and here to GCCWeek activities in 2015 and 2016, and our How to organize Global Climate Change Week at your university guide.
So please spread the word, follow GCCWeek on twitter (hashtag #GCCW17), and register for GCCWeek (you can register your interesthere and register activities here).
Best of luck from the GCCWeek team!
