The Cambridge Climate Coalition was formed in 2007 to bring together the wide variety of student groups campaigning on climate change, and to strengthen us through cooperation. Initially founded by students, the coalition is broadening its membership to include groups from outside the university.

As one of the most pressing issues of our time, Climate Change is taken seriously in the University. Not only do we have our own Go Greener campaign, but many other student groups, university bodies and town groups are also campaigning and working to change their practices in response to the challenges posed by our changing climate.
Go to our links page for more campaigning and ethical links not related to climate change.

Non Cambridge Resources
Of course, plenty of people outside of Cambridge are concerned about climate change. There are all kinds of national and international networks at all levels, lots of funny and moving film clips, articles, discussion fora and more... Here is a selection. If you know of anything we've missed out here, please email us.
Flims, clips and so on (send these to people, for their edification and amusement):
Wombat - there is a great clip of a wombat dancing, but sadly this website is having a problem at the moment. Search for global mind shift wombat, and they might have fixed it.
CBI (confederation of british industry) report about climate change (from business leaders. Not activists)
What's the worst that could happen? - how to deal with uncertainty.
There are so many things being said about climate change, it's getting a bit crowded on this page, so there's a new page for more climate change media and articles.
Groups and networks
(COIN) - these guys are really excellent, and tackling one of the most crucial issues of all - communicating climate change so that people get out of their denialism and start being able to take action.
Climate Ark is a climate change and global warming portal and search engine that promotes public policy that addresses global climate change through reductions in carbon dioxide and other emissions, renewable energy, energy conservation and ending deforestation.
The Alliance for Climate Protection -- a nonprofit, nonpartisan effort founded by Nobel laureate and former Vice President Al Gore. The goal of the Alliance is to build a movement that creates the political will to solve the climate crisis -- in part through repowering America with 100 percent of its electricity from clean energy sources within 10 years. Our economy, national security, and climate can't afford to wait.
