The International Universities Climate Alliance (IUCA) will hold a "Climate Talks Student Forum" in conjunction with EARTH DAY. We will capture the perspectives of students at universities around the world and create global networking opportunities for students interested in climate change research and advocacy.


As of November 11, our university has joined the IUCA, which was launched in April 2020, as the only member school in Japan. The University Federation was founded by the University of New South Wales in Australia, and has 56 member institutions from 22 countries around the world (as of March 22, 2022). Main activities include annual general meetings and regional committee meetings, as well as workshops and researcher roundtables on the five research themes and four subthemes proposed by this university federation. By participating in these activities, you will be able to gather information and build networks on research themes that interest you.
