Our Mission & Vision
How is transformation possible at this scale?
The Center for Climate Justice’s mission is to leverage and harness the power of the university to support, strengthen, and build an emergent climate justice ecosystem and social movement that solves the climate crisis through science, systems thinking, and social-ecological justice.
