UNIVERSITY CLIMATE CONVENTION
The University Climate Convention is an “active learning” program aligned with the Paris Agreement and the Convention for the Transition of Higher Education Institutions.
As a signatory to the Grenoble Agreement and, with the European Metropolis of Lille (MEL), committed to the goal of zero carbon by 2050, the Université Catholique de Lille offers training and education regarding climate issues
Joining the University Climate Convention means:
- Acting on behalf of the climate
- Learning about the ecological and climate transition and take ownership of the issues
- Participating in the development and implementation of solutions
For three months, 100 students and 50 staff members from across the University and its varied establishments are taking part in an unprecedented program of training and collective workshops aimed at reducing carbon impact and personal lifestyle reconsiderations.
Participants learn about global climate and energy issues, examine the University's carbon footprint and its various emission sources, and imagine solutions for the future. These will be presented to a jury of experts and decision-makers at the concluding session to be held on 6 December 2022 at the regional council office.
Program dates: 13 and 20 October, 10, 17 and 24 November, 1 and 6 December, from 3 pm to 6 pm.
