The UAB Government Council reaffirms the Declaration of Climate Emergency and approves the new slogan for the FMUAB19: “Climate emergency: UAB takes action!”

25/07/2019

On May 21st, the UAB Governing team joined the Declaration of Climate Emergency by giving support to the UAB Ecologist Assembly, who wrote an open letter addressed to the university community. In this letter, the assembly members note the responsibility that universities have as “spokespersons of scientific community of the country” to raise the alarm in this crisis.

After listening to the signers’ demands, the UAB decided to declare the state of climate emergency and put this crisis as new slogan of UAB Festa Major, which in its last editions it has become a space of awareness due to its impact and will take place on November 7th. According to the philosophy of this slogan, during the academic year 2019/2020 a series of activities and actions to involve the entire university community will be promoted.

On July 4th, the UAB Government Council reaffirmed the Declaration of Climate Emergency and, finally, The FMUAB19 Slogan Commission — formed by the Environmental management area, the Fundación Autónoma Solidaria (FAS), members from the Research Centre for Ecology and Forestry Applications (CREAF), from Institute of Environmental Science and Technology (ICTA) and Biosciences and Science professors, along with the Dinamització Comunitària department — chose “Climate emergency: UAB takes action!” as the new FMUAB slogan.
