Ray C. Anderson Foundation's Grant to Emory University Supports Statewide Climate Consortium Co-Founded With the University of Georgia and Georgia Tech
As many nations are meeting about climate impacts in Katowice, Poland, for COP24, and just over a week after the release of the U.S. National Climate Assessment Report, nonprofits and university leaders in Georgia are choosing not to take the "wait and see" posiiton.
