The Waterloo Climate Institute has ratified a new strategic plan that will chart our course for the next five years. With this new direction, we are pleased to introduce a new logo that reflects the growth of the institute and communicates our collective strengths and purpose.
The new logo is based around the concept of the core; representing Waterloo as a central hub for research and innovation to accelerate the transition to a just, equitable, inclusive, low-carbon future. The core of the institute brings together fundamental and applied scientists with decision makers and practitioners on the front lines of climate change to create truly impactful results for society, our economy and our environment – all represented by the logo elements coming together to create a single icon.
Moving forward, the institute’s mission will be to elevate and enhance the impact and excellence of innovative interdisciplinary research and education that empowers business, governments, and civil society to respond effectively to the climate crisis. To do this, we will continue to focus on the following core and cross-cutting theme areas, and also support research and inquiry that intersects with, and spans across these themes:
Core research themes:
- Deep decarbonization and sustainability transitions
- Climate science, modelling, and observation
- Climate risks, resilience, and adaptation
Cross-cutting research themes:
- Equity and justice
