Overseas & Off-Campus Office Deepens Commitment to Climate Action

We are officially a Signatory of the CANIE Accord!

The Overseas & Off-Campus Programs office has recently become a Signatory to the CANIE Accord, a public commitment to climate action that was developed in consultation with leaders from international education peak bodies, associations, higher education institutions, university networks, media, national governments, corporations, supranational bodies, scholarship bodies, and more.

The Accord, and accompanying Glasgow Paper, represent the international education sector’s climate ambitions and commitment to align with scientific recommendations and global climate agreements. By becoming a Signatory to the CANIE Accord, the Overseas & Off-Campus Programs office is strengthening and accelerating the international education sector’s collective response to the climate crisis.

The Climate Action Network for International Educators (CANIE) is a volunteer grassroots initiative formed by international education practitioners from around the world who see the need and opportunity for the sector to take bold climate action. Through open-access resources, specialized events, networking and information sharing, CANIE aims to mobilize the full power of the international education community to address our contribution to the climate crisis.
