Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Roseanna Cunningham congratulated GCU on founding the Centre for Climate Justice.
At a celebratory event, she said: “Climate justice is a growing debate not just within Scotland but around the world. The contribution that could be made by this Centre is enormous as we are in at the early part of this debate. It’s really important that the University has grasped this with both hands.”
The pioneering GCU initiative was created out of an initial partnership with the Mary Robinson Foundation for Climate Justice in Dublin, and is committed to interdisciplinary research and learning with the aim of creating long-lasting solutions for individuals, communities and society.
The Centre currently runs the globally unique MSc in Climate Justice and has research projects and collaborations across sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
