Graduate students associated with the University of Washington’s Program on Climate Change and the MIT Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences are pleased to announce the 14th Annual Graduate Climate Conference (GCC), which will be held virtually October 30 – November 1, 2020.

The GCC is an interdisciplinary conference run by graduate students, for graduate students. The organizers of GCC strive to feature a diverse representation of students and research topics to create a broader, more inclusive community for emerging leaders in climate-related fields.

We encourage students from all backgrounds and stages of their graduate careers to apply. GCC highlights climate research from a variety of disciplines from the physical, natural, and social sciences and humanities, including anthropology, atmospheric sciences, biology, communication, environmental sciences, economics, engineering, ethics, geography, geology, law, oceanography, public health, public policy, resource management, and more.

We highly encourage abstracts from students with traditionally underrepresented backgrounds.

Applications for GCC 2020 are now open. The deadline for abstract submission is September 1. Limited funding to cover any costs incurred by attending the conference will be awarded on an as-needed basis to as many participants as possible.
