CQ9游戏官网 is actively addressing the global crisis of climate change.

气候 and sustainability at CQ9游戏官网

The 大学 CQ9游戏 is committed to global 领导 in environmental, social and institutional sustainability. We meet this challenge through our Strategic Framework, 研究, academic programs, campus operations, and the impact and influence of our students, 教师, 工作人员 and alumni.

CQ9游戏官网的 气候 and Sustainability Action Plan (CSAP) will respond to urgent global calls for action. This new plan will guide CQ9游戏官网’s integrated sustainability practices in every domain while respecting and valuing 土著 ways of knowing and being.

CQ9游戏官网 is exceptionally well positioned to respond to climate change and the plan will offer ambitious, creative and integrated solutions.

社区 engagement

Goals, strategies and actions

From July to Dec. 2021, we engaged with five task force groups of students, 教师 and 工作人员 who are experts in their areas of climate and sustainability.
