Climate Solutions Collaborative

We are catalyzing climate action and collaboration at NC State.

What is the Climate Solutions Collaborative?

The Climate Solutions Collaborative is a vibrant ecosystem of dedicated efforts at NC State committed to addressing the complex challenges posed by climate change. It is a resource hub, a platform for collaboration, and most importantly, a catalyst for change. With diverse efforts spanning themes like water, energy, economics, health, and public policy, we are building a brighter, more sustainable future. Together, we strive to amplify our collective impact, raise awareness, and form solutions to solve the climate crisis. Join us on this journey to inspire change and create a resilient and sustainable world for all.


NC State faculty, staff and students are seeking solutions around themes including climate, water, air, land, energy, health and community. This table provides an introduction to who at NC State is working in these important areas.
