The Teaching & Research Sub-Committee of the University Sustainability Committee, with support from the Environmental Resilience Institute (ERI), is pleased to announce the launch of the inaugural Summer Decarbonization Academy. The Academy will occur June 13 to August 5, 2022 and provide a hands-on learning experience for rising third-years, fourth-years, and graduate students currently enrolled in any UVA program interested in working towards UVA’s goals of being and carbon-neutral by 2030 and fossil fuel-free by 2050. Student participants will receive $5000 for the summer.
Participants will engage with faculty and staff through the program's two signature components. First, participants will complete a hands-on, individual decarbonization learning experience (“project”). Second, participants will complete group-based shared learning activities to develop connections among the fellows and foster dissemination of cutting-edge content.
