The idea of the Washington University Climate Change Program (WUCCP) was born of an InCEES initiative called “Topics of Conversation.” Established in 2011, it is designed as a series of discussion groups drawing together faculty and disparate disciplines, administrators and community colleagues to address shared areas of opportunity. Early conversation groups addressed climate change and building for the future of our cities. The two groups came together to help launch WUCCP. The specific goals of the program are to connect and effectively inform a global network of institutions, scholars, practitioners and citizens to address significant climate related challenges.
