Antioch University Response to US Withdrawal from Paris Climate Accord
Today, President Trump announced that the United States plans to withdraw from the Paris climate accord. We at Antioch University are both disheartened and concerned with this symbolic decision, as well as a lack of US leadership on global efforts to combat climate change.
Despite the efforts of the current administration to discredit climate science, opportunities for collaboration grow at the local level. We are proud to partner with our communities, which continue to focus efforts to respond and adapt to climate change.
Now, more than ever, we must be diligent and unrelenting in our work to protect the environment as we prepare for the continued effects of climate change.
Antioch University maintains our commitment to furthering social, economic, and environmental justice. We will continue our fifty-plus year history of training environmental policy-makers, environmental scientists, educators, and leaders to solve critical and emerging environmental challenges by delivering visionary, progressive, and interdisciplinary Environmental Studies programs.
