Change matters...

The Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change (IC3) brings together experts across disciplines to consider the impacts of climate change from every angle. A fresh approach, built on smart science, working toward achievable solutions – because at the University of Waterloo, change really does matter.

IC3's mission is to facilitate interdisciplinary research and education that empowers business, government and civil society to respond effectively to climate change and accelerate the transition to a low-carbon and climate-resilient society.
