  • About
    The Global Alliance of Universities on Climate (GAUC) was established in 2019 with the mission of providing leadership in global higher education’s efforts to address climate change. Since its establishment, GAUC has received generous recognition worldwide. The activities provided by GAUC attracted over 300 million global participations (For more information, please go to: GAUC has 15 prestigious member universities from 9 countries across 6 continents, including Tsinghua University, London School of Economics and Political Science, Yale University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, Australian National University, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Imperial College London, Indian Institute of Science, Sciences Po, Stellenbosch University, the University of Tokyo, University of California, Berkeley, and Columbia University. Since 2021,GAUC has been working to inspire youth to investigate the synergy between climate change and other Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in order to tackle complex global challenges, using the concept of ‘Climate x’. In 2022, GAUC’s ‘Climate x’ Campaign attracted 1.14 million global participations, which includes a series of events at the national, regional, and global levels, such as the ‘Climate x’ Youth Leadership Training Pilot, Africa Regional Climate Forum, 2022 ‘Climate x’ Global Youth Summit on Net-zero Future, COP27 GAUC DAY, and COP27 GAUC Youth Delegation. In January 2022, GAUC proposed to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to set up a mechanism for launching Global Youth Climate Week. Scheduled before each COP, the Week aims to empower youth generate more concrete impacts on the progress of global climate governance by convening and coordinating their actions. With over 100 institutions worldwide as co-initiators, the inaugural Global Youth Climate Week was successfully launched one week prior to COP27. The Week served to generate momentum for the conference and showcased the broad societal support for youth engagement in climate action. During COP27, 100 GAUC Global Youth Ambassadors prepared an Open Letter to world leaders, which was delivered to heads of state from 5 countries, 14 ministers, and 11 government delegations. Their demands for increased youth participation in global climate governance were incorporated into the "Sharm El-Sheikh Implementation Plan," a key document of COP27.
