Elon University joins more than 1,500 leaders in affirming commitment to global climate action

With the fifth anniversary of the Paris Agreement nearing, Elon University recently signed on to a multi-sector statement urging federal policymakers to launch a national mobilization on climate action.

Dec. 12, 2020, is the five-year anniversary of the world coming together to sign on to the Paris Agreement, and Elon University is marking the moment by joining over fifteen hundred leaders from local governments, businesses, universities, and other institutions across the country as part of the “America Is All In” multi-sector statement.

This multi-sector statement will be delivered to the incoming Biden-Harris administration, as well as to United Nations officials and global heads of state at the Climate Ambition Summit hosted by the United Kingdom, also on Dec. 12, 2020.

The “America Is All In” declaration is organized by We Are Still In, a coalition in support for climate action and a pledge to uphold the United States’ commitments to reduce emissions under the Paris Agreement. With more than 3,900 organizations and institutions across all sectors of the United States, these leaders represent over half of the national population, nearly two-thirds of the economy, and more than half of the country’s emissions. While the United States officially exited the Paris Agreement on Nov. 4, 2020, the incoming Biden-Harris administration has committed to reentering the unprecedented global agreement.
