Climate change 2021: If we don’t act now, it will be too late.
Howdy, I hope everyone is enjoying their reading week so far. Admin Audrey went to the Lake District for a four-day residential! Hiking up and down the hills made me ponder about our relationships with nature.
It is the time to act. On 31 October – 12 November 2021, The UK has been hosting the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow. The summit will bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
UCL PALS has been actively responding to the call. We’re proudly recognised by UCL as the greenest department (8 years in a row and working hard to make that 9!) and we’re on a mission to improve the impact of UCL’s estate, build community and further research. At UCL’s 2021 #UCLSusAwards Ceremony, we won gold in the Green Impact Award categories and LEAF lab awards.
However, we are not sure about green awareness among the student communities. Can you name one initiative taken by UCL PALS? What’s your daily green practice? Comment below!
