In May 2019 we declared a climate change emergency to show support those calling for urgent action and show commitment to leading the change required. This statement is resulting in a clear plan of action as to how we, as a university, are playing our part. There is a growing demand for knowledge and expertise in all aspects of climate change.

The extensive planting of trees is currently promoted as a measure to mitigate climate change through carbon sequestration, reverse desertification and land degradation, and provide opportunities for sustainable development. However, planting trees can increase fire risk, reduce water run-off and pastureland, lead to land degradation, and imperil sustainable development. The act of planting.Learn More
