Join the Climate Change Institute

Membership to the Climate Change Institute is open to academics (including Visiting Fellows) and PhD / HDR students who are involved in climate related research and education at ANU.

The Climate Change Institute acts as an entry point for anyone who’s interested in finding out about climate change research and education at ANU. Our membership comprises approximately 300 academics and PhD students whose work touches on climate change.  

Our goal is to contribute to climate change solutions. We draw on the wealth of ANU climate expertise and connect that expertise with governments, businesses, the media, the Canberra community and the general public. We’re also focussed on building and supporting a collaborative community of climate related researchers and teachers from every part of the university.  

Membership is open to all ANU academics and PhD students who are involved in climate related research and education. If you’re not an ANU staff member or research student and would like to stay informed on climate issues at ANU, subscribe to our mailing list or follow us on Twitter or Facebook.
