Climate change presents a challenge like no other, truly daunting in its complexity. At MIT, faculty, students, and staff are working to address the planet’s mounting issues in ways both large and small. While some work to mitigate damage and construct a sustainable future, others seek to understand and influence the human behaviors at the heart of the problem. Together, they hope to protect Earth.
