Climate Framework, background
If universities are to move forward and take responsibility as societal actors, they must act upon their research results into climate change and be bold and clear in their communication and collaboration with companies, society and governmental actors. Therefore a group of 37 Swedish universities and colleges has created a combined climate framework to serve as the basis for individual climate strategies; the aim being to align with the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C warming limit by 2030. 

After the workshop

There was a big interest in the FollowUp Climate Framework workshop. Thank you for sharing your ideas and experiences. Here are the results from our two mentimeter surveys and the questions from the workshop Chat dialogue. The answers to the questions will be published later on
