The Climate Change Student Interest Group was initiated in 2005 with the aim to foster personal, campus, and political awareness of climate change, and its broader environmental and social implications. To this end, we have formed linkages with other campus groups and researchers with relevant interests; promoted energy efficiency and fuel switching on and off campus; and engaged in broader community awareness-raising activities. Furthermore, we support policy efforts to mitigate climate change including local, state, and federal legislation. In the past, we have sponsored guest speakers on campus, submitted an energy conservation grant proposal to the Green Fund, attended Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative stakeholder meetings and participated in Yale’s first Climate Justice Speaker Series. We have also provided organizational and financial support for students to attend relevant international conferences and events, such as the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Conference of the Parties (UNFCCC COPs). We welcome all interested students and faculty to contribute to our efforts and invite newcomers to help the SIG develop further.
