When & Where
Climate Change Initiative at UMass Lowell
The Climate Change Initiative (CCI) addresses climate change through education, research, and developing solutions to transition to a more sustainable and resilient society.
UMass Lowell is demonstrating its commitment to addressing climate change through its publicly stated Climate Action Plan. The goal is to take UMass Lowell to net zero emissions of heat-trapping pollutants by 2050 and, equally importantly, to build research, education, and outreach programs that inform our students, communities and larger society about climate change.
