Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.
Climate change is a real and undeniable threat to the entire planet. SDG 13 requires urgent collaborative action to combat climate change. The EUC is committed to acting with urgency to tackle climate change and its global impacts through education, innovation, and capacity building.
Envisioning Indigenous-derived climate change futures
Knowledge is foundational to climate change mitigation, adaptation, and impact reduction. Deborah McGregor, Lisa Myers, and Alan Corbiere’s research investigates the climate crisis through Indigenous-derived solutions and knowledge systems. To address the crisis and live well with the Earth, a transformational shift in how global society relates to all life must take place; and this can only be learned through Indigenous communities.
Climate Solutions Park
The Climate Solutions Park at York University is a testament to the EUC’s dedication to tackle the climate crisis through innovative solutions. With a focus on community-based agriculture, renewable energy, electric mobility, First Nations knowledge, sustainable construction and eco-tourism, and experiential learning, the Climate Solutions Park is providing students with tangible capacity and resiliency building in the face of climate change.
Finding common ground for environmental activism and ethics
Understanding climate change through multiple lenses is integral to making the necessary changes to address it. Researcher and activist Peter Timmerman approaches climate change in both Western and Eastern philosophies and has found long-term sustainability in the world’s faith traditions, especially in Buddhism and environmental activism in South and Southeast Asia. Timmerman is finding climate solutions in global unity and activism.
