Celebrating a record-setting climate research investment
State officials, University of California leaders and researchers from nearly two dozen California universities gathered in Sacramento last week to sound the alarm about climate change and to rally behind the state’s global leadership in climate action, investment and research.
The event, held at the new UC Student and Policy Center, honored the awardees of the California Climate Action Seed and Matching Grants and the UC Climate Action Innovation and Entrepreneurship Grants. These grants are funding solutions-oriented research into wildfire, water, health, biodiversity, sea level rise, clean energy and disaster response, among other pressing topics, with a focus on protecting people’s health, homes and livelihoods.
