Emory students and alumni are at the forefront of the climate change movement and are engaged through a number of organizations and initiatives on Emory's campus and beyond.
ECAST provides a forum for undergraduates, graduate students, & faculty across Emory University to conduct climate-related analyses, advance climate solutions, and host events that aim to increase our members’ capacity to take action. We are committed to helping members build the skills they need to become effective climate advocates throughout their Emory career and beyond.
Emory Climate Reality Project is a non-partisan organization focused on climate activism at Emory. Everyone is welcome.
As a national movement, The Climate Reality Project, believes that equity, fairness, and the fully voiced engagement of frontline communities most impacted by climate change are essential components of any enduring climate solution and that to solve the climate crisis, we must pursue a just transition to a clean energy economy that nurtures healthy and sustainable communities and ecosystems.
Plastic Free Emory is a student-led initiative interested in tackling single-use plastic on campus through outreach, education, policy changes, and most importantly a pledge that would phase out unnecessary single-use plastic.
The Emory Alumni Environmental Network (EAEN) seeks to connect alumni with a shared interest in preserving our environment, through identifying and encouraging careers in sustainability. We aim to connect alumni with each other, Emory faculty, and students who share a passion for protecting the environment, providing a platform to exchange ideas and advice, as well as relevant programming and networking opportunities around the world. EAEN hosts digital events and regular in person programming in select cities, including Atlanta, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C., as well as special events in additional cities in collaboration with other Emory alumni networks.
