Global Climate Change Week
Global Climate Change Week (GCCWeek; http://globalclimatechangeweek.com/) aims to encourage academic communities – including academics, students, and non-academic staff at universities – to engage with each other, their communities, and policy makers on climate change actions and solutions.
In this, its fifth year GCCWeek will take place on October 14-20.
For examples of GCCWeek activities at various universities around the world in recent years see e.g. https://www.bath.ac.uk/announcements/global-climate-change-week-2018/; https://www.facebook.com/pg/AteneoGCCW/events/; https://www.facebook.com/gccwatuow/; and https://www.monash.edu/climateactionweek.
