This week, the University of Bergen became part of a global climate alliance of around 40 universities worldwide.
The goal of this alliance is to be a global source of research-based knowledge and reliable communication on climate change, impacts, and adaptation.
– “The Climate Alliance is a timely effort to raise awareness about climate change – our biggest challenge. Global crises require global action and solutions, and the University of Bergen is well prepared to contribute in its areas of focus on climate and energy conversion, marine research and global social challenges,” says Tore Furevik of the Bjerknes Center for Climate Research and professor at UiB in a statement on the university’s website.
It is the International Universities Climate Alliance (IUCA) that they have joined.
– “We are proud to join a worldwide climate alliance and believe that the alliance will be at the forefront of the international debate on climate change. As part of the alliance, we want to share our commitment with policymakers and business leaders who want to use the latest research to accelerate various climate change initiatives,” says Rector Dag Rune Olsen at the University of Bergen to Uib.no.
It was Forskning.no that first mentioned the case.
