Launch of the “Climate Ambassadors CA-MX” Initiative
Wednesday, August 17
- The launching event of the Climate Ambassadors CA-MX/Embajadores Climaticos CA-MX program took place on August 17, 2022, at Casa de la Universidad de California in Mexico City.
The University of California Alianza MX had the honor of hosting three panels comprised of participants that are critical to the success of this program: Climate Ambassadors students, academic representation across the UC and from academic institutions in Mexico, mentors, NGO’s and private sector partners. Special guest speakers included Juan S. Muñoz, Chancellor of the University of California Merced, and Silvio González, Minister Counselor for Public Diplomacy, US Embassy Mexico. Over 60 guests attended the event (including virtual participation).
Panelists highlighted why this program is relevant to their institutions and shared programs/actions that they’re currently undertaking to advance the climate agenda. It was inspiring to see all the Climate Ambassadors present and on Zoom take the leadership reigns in pursuit of solutions to the critical challenges of our time for CA and Mexico.
