Global Climate Change Week (GCCW) aims to encourage academic communities – including academics, students, and non-academic staff at universities – in all disciplines and countries to engage with each other, their communities, and policy makers on climate change action and solutions. Held annually in October, GCCW provides an open-ended framework for voluntary activities aimed at raising awareness, inspiring behaviour change, and driving political transformation in relation to climate policy. For general examples of activities to pursue during GCCW see here. For specific examples of activities pursued during GCCW in 2015 and 2016 see here, here, and here.
