The Vanderbilt Climate Change Initiative (VCCI) is a multi-disciplinary initiative aimed at engaging government, civil society, business, and academia to address the challenges and harness the opportunities climate change presents. VCCI places special emphasis on building youth leadership through experiential learning and international collaborations. Through sponsored projects, research, and stakeholder engagement, we also support the work of businesses and local and state governments to identify, quantify, and reduce climate related risks.
Our work is truly multi-disciplinary, and draws from the broad range of experts on Vanderbilt campus and beyond through our many and varied collaborations, network affiliations, and partnerships.
