Millennium Fellowship Project: University Climate Delegation Coalition
The University Climate Delegation Coalition, or UCDC, is a coalition of university delegations within the UNFCCC who work to grow the voice of U.S University students and faculty on key climate issues, engaging with the U.S Congress to advocate for compliance with and expansion of the Paris Agreement. Over the course of this year, we are looking to significantly grow our membership of university delegations, with agreements in place to add international universities from across the Americas and Europe as well. As President, I am focused on maintaining the presence we generated in the founding of the group last November, as well as increasing the potential impact of the annual letter to congress through membership growth and diversification
