First Year Seminar: How Cornell is Changing the World Through Climate Leadership


Cornell University is a partner, innovation incubator, and leader in tackling humanity's greatest challenge – climate change. This course will explore our regional role and partnerships in creating renewable energy, social justice, and low carbon solutions as well as the challenges which still lie ahead in reaching our goal of neutrality by 2035. Students will take field trips to campus and community "climate action sites" and participate in discussion about our personal and collective roles in creating a just and sustainable future.
