Given a global climate crisis, Simon Fraser University embeds climate action throughout our operations, research, academics and community engagement. ACT – Action on Climate Team at SFU is taking urgent action to combat climate change and its global impacts. ACT is the first and only university-based think tank initiative in North America dedicated to low-carbon resilience (LCR) and nature-based solutions.
We work across sectors to mobilize relevant knowledge for practice. We do this by advancing public and private sector partnerships, coordinating and co-creating leading-edge research for practice, mobilizing policy relevant knowledge to help us all go further faster on climate and sustainability action.
ACT’s mission is to bring leading experts from around the world together with professional practitioners, industry, communities, NGOs and all levels of government to explore climate change risks and further opportunities for systemic climate action that advances resilience and sustainability.
We are the first—and still the only—university-based think tank initiative in North America dedicated to a comprehensive suite of climate action issues.
