The WMU Climate Change Working Group is an interdisciplinary group of faculty, staff, student and community volunteers dedicated to working for the urgent action needed to adapt to and mitigate global climate change. The CCWG heightens the awareness of the consequences of climate change and provides leadership about action through research, education and community outreach in Kalamazoo. The CCWG is a member of the Kalamazoo Climate Crisis Coalition.
Climate change is a serious social problem, and examination of the climate disruptions due to global warming may evoke a strong emotional response. Some who come to understand the dire consequences of the climate crisis may experience what has been called “climate grief” or “climate anxiety”. We take the challenge of climate anxiety seriously at WMU. Follow the links below for resources.
To comply with federal, state and University guidelines for social distancing, Fridays for Future Events are currently being coordinated by the Kalamazoo Climate Crisis Coalition. They are free to all. If you are not already on the email list, sign up here.
