Climate Students Group

In addition to the Master of Climate Change students, there is an active group of students on campus who are passionate about studying, researching and influencing action on climate change. 

Climate Students

Climate Students is a student-led group interested in facilitating research, education, and action regarding climate change at Waterloo, in the community, and on the global stage. Climate Students is an evolution of the University of Waterloo Coalition for Sustainable Development (UWCSD).

The organization was created in 2013 to promote student participation at COP19 and continued to facilitate student involvement in COP21 and COP22.

The University of Waterloo Coalition for Sustainable Development (UWCSD)

The UWCSD served as a platform for University of Waterloo students to voice their opinions, raise awareness and take action for social, environmental and economic sustainability from September 2013 until August 2014.

In November 2013, the UWCSD supported a delegation of students and advisors who attended the COP19 UNFCCC Conference in Warsaw, Poland.

Student Colloquium

A Student Colloquium was organized yearly in 2009, 2010 and 2011 to showcase student research and raise awareness about climate change. The latter goal was emphasized in 2011 when the Colloquium was held as part of a larger effort to host a Climate Change Awareness week.
