The Berkeley Climate Change Network (BCCN) helps to advance climate research, education and impact at UC Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. The BCCN is a convener, connector and informant for faculty, staff and students to accelerate campus action to cut carbon pollution and build a more resilient and equitable planet. BCCN operates through four primary channels:
- Bringing together 300+ faculty and staff researchers for inter-disciplinary climate projects that produce actionable research.
- Working with development staff to identify climate funding opportunities and secure grants, donations and other resources.
- Building stronger partnerships between Berkeley academics and off-campus climate leaders from government, community-based organizations and the private sector.
- Expanding climate-related educational activities on campus in partnership with the Berkeley Energy & Resources Collaborative (BERC), the Student Environmental Resource Center (SERC) and other student-led organizations.
For the 23-24 school year, BCCN is funded by the Vice Chancellor for Research, thirteen Deans and Lawrence Berkeley Lab.
