Share a pledge

We believe that collective action can have a major impact. For this reason, we have asked our network of Commonwealth Scholars, Alumni, and partners to unite in pledging specific actions that can address climate issues in their communities this year. By making small changes today, we can bring about considerable impacts to tackle climate change in the future.

To find out more and how to make your pledge, visit the #OurClimatePledge page.

Climate Action webinar series

Between 25 October – 19 November 2021, the CSC Alumni Team will host a programme of webinars, delivered by Commonwealth Alumni, on their work, research, and contributions to tackling the climate crisis. 14 webinars are scheduled to take place as part of the ‘Climate Action’ series and will explore a range of climate-related issues across 10 countries, including climate finance, gender security, climate change governance, clean and green energy, and public health. You can find out more about each of the webinars and speakers on the Events webpage.

Webinar recordings will be made available on the CSC’s YouTube channel following the series, as part of a ‘Climate Action’ playlist.
