HOW CAN WE SAVE THE PLANET?

WHAT CAN BE DONE NOW TO HELP PEOPLE IN CRISIS?

WHO WILL COME UP WITH THE NEXT GREAT IDEA TO BUILD A BETTER FUTURE?

As the world revives from the impact of the global health crisis - COVID-19, another challenge with far greater impact awaits humanity, the climate crisis. The sixth Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report has concluded a code red warning for all humanity. Imagine a world where floods, drought, and wild fires happen on a regular basis, the air you breath is full of particles that damages your lungs, the food you eat comes from polluted soils, and rare infectious zoonotic diseases like COVID-19 is a regular. Would you want to live in a world like that? Generations of youth have shared their concerns about the environment with world leaders, yet we are still on a trajectory to 3.3 degrees in less than 80 years. The Global Alliance of Universities on Climate (GAUC) is missioned to close the gap, empowering youth to make real impact on an issue that will concern them, and the future generations to come. One of its flagship events, the Graduate Forum, is scheduled for October 25 to 29. This year’s graduate forum consists of three tracks - academic, action, and voice, to ensure maximum participation of youth across different interests.
