Science + Action

There is room and reason for each of us to be part of the solution. I urge everyone to join us in rising to this historic challenge.

- L. Rafael Reif, President, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

MIT Climate is MIT’s central portal to all the work happening across MIT on climate change, and a place for worldwide discussion and learning.

For the MIT community, this site brings together and showcases the education, research, and innovation by MIT’s administration, departments, labs, centers, and student and alumni groups.

For the world, this portal is a window into the cutting-edge climate science and action emerging from MIT and beyond, as well as a place to ask questions of experts, dig into emerging climate research, and engage in a global dialogue with people around the world. 

Climate change demands society’s urgent attention, though the science and impacts can sometimes be unclear. MIT Climate aims to connect questions to answers, research to solutions, and knowledge to action.

MIT Climate is a partnership of the MIT Environmental Solutions Initiative and MIT Open Learning, with support from the MIT Office of the Vice President for Research.
