AASHE commends the 183+ colleges and universities along with more than 1,000 governors, mayors, businesses and investors that have assembled in pursuit of climate action to declare their intent to continue to ensure the U.S. remains a global leader in reducing carbon emissions through the We Are Still In movement. Among them include a mixture of private universities, state schools and community colleges, both small and large. Together, these leaders are sending a strong signal to the international community and the 194 other parties to the Paris Agreement about the continued commitment of the U.S. to ambitious action on climate change absent leadership at the federal level.
This statement embraces this rapidly growing movement of sub-national and civil society leaders, by announcing that not only are these leaders stepping forward, they are stepping forward together. We encourage AASHE member institutions, non-profit organizations and businesses to continue to publicly demonstrate a strong show of support for climate action by adding your name to the statement. Thanks to our friends at Second Nature, colleges and universities wishing to add their name can do so by registering here. Companies, investors, mayors and governors wishing to add their name to the statement can do so by registering here.
