U. announces conference addressing climate action on May 4
University President Jonathan Holloway invited students, faculty and staff to attend a conference on Mobilizing the University for Climate Transformation on May 4, in a University-wide email sent yesterday.
The conference will be a place for the Rutgers community to learn more about climate action and how they can collaborate with each other to achieve it, according to the message.
In his message, Holloway also discussed the University’s Climate Action Plan, which was created a year ago for the purpose of mobilizing the Rutgers' academic, operational and economic resources to promote climate solutions.
He said that a significant amount of work lies ahead for the University in conducting this plan, as Rutgers will aim to achieve carbon neutrality and advance decarbonization and climate adaptation through a partnership with other communities all over New Jersey.
“Even as we recognize the daunting task that lies ahead, I hope you will be inspired as I am by the work Rutgers is already doing to advance climate action,” Holloway said.
