WMU Climate Change Working Group
Creating a Just and Sustainable Future
To help us better understand and address the global climate emergency, Western Michigan University Climate Change Working Group is declaring the month of March 2023 as Climate Emergency Month. The designation is supported by a wide range of campus and local organizations. During the month, events, speakers, discussions, and participatory opportunities will be available throughout the Kalamazoo community.
Events will focus on the urgency of the crisis at global and local levels, on taking action, and ensuring justice. What is the climate emergency? Who will be impacted? How do we protect ourselves and reduce the threat to Earth’s ecosystems? How do we support those most at risk and vulnerable? What challenges are ahead of us?
WMU seeks participation, sponsorship, and support from all educational and community organizations, businesses, and local governments, and urges all groups to develop activities that can be part Climate Emergency Month.
