Melbourne Climate Futures launched

Researchers at the University of Melbourne are coming together to launch Melbourne Climate Futures to contribute to greater action on climate change.

To help drive action on climate change, the humanities, science, engineering and medicine at the University of Melbourne are coming together on Tuesday 23 March 2021 to launch Melbourne Climate Futures.

The next few years will be crucial to avoiding the worst effects of climate change. Leaders from around the world have recognised this pivotal moment and are calling for immediate action. More than 110 countries have now pledged to be carbon neutral by 2050. In the past few months, both China and the USA have committed to accelerating their transition to net zero emissions. Businesses are going green. And universities are strengthening research into protecting the planet from climate change.

To contribute to this global push, the University of Melbourne is launching Melbourne Climate Futures. This initiative builds on decades of research across areas such as climate change impacts in the Pacific, energy futures and bushfire resilience.

Melbourne Climate Futures brings researchers together to contribute to greater action on climate change in our region and around the world.

Below are just some of the University institutes, centres and programs that make up Melbourne Climate Futures.

Together with the following University partnerships, University-affiliated Cooperative Research Centres (CRCs), National Environmental Science Program (NESP) hubs, and Australian Research Council Centres of Excellence and funded projects.
