In light of the indisputable evidence of rapid and devastating climate change, a coalition of students, faculty, staff, and community members have joined together to form the MUN Climate Action Coalition. As part of Climate Action Week (September 20-27, 2019), the Coalition will be calling on Memorial University of Newfoundland to sign the MUN Crisis Pledge: Fighting Climate Change through Transformation.
The MUN Crisis Pledge states that MUN will commit to the following actions:
- Declare a climate emergency; and
- Work with the Climate Action Coalition to take meaningful action to meet IPCC targets.
As the only university in our province, Memorial University has a critical role to play in advancing knowledge and taking leadership on climate action.
