Climate change, along with biodiversity loss, confronts humanity with an enormous threat. But history and the current COVID-19 crisis, have taught us that extraordinary changes are possible...

Now more than ever, the world looks to powerful research communities like UCL to lead the push for change, mobilising large, diverse groups of committed people, backed by excellent scholarship, to effect concrete impact in the world. 
 
As a community of staff, students, citizens and partners, UCL is addressing the climate challenge on multiple fronts; ranging from what we can achieve today, to pioneering future system change, and putting sustainability at the heart of our campus. 

We can all play our part. Get inspired by the extraordinary breadth of climate-focused activity taking place at UCL and find out about our Generation One campaign and how you can get involved.
