About Our Organization
As a destination for world-class research and learning, the Canadian Centre for Climate Change and Adaptation (CCCAA) at the University of Prince Edward Island provides knowledge and collaboration in a “living laboratory” environment. The Centre is a new initiative jointly funded by the Government of Canada, the Government of Prince Edward Island, and the University of Prince Edward Island that provides access to high-quality datasets, multidisciplinary research teams, outstanding graduate and postdoctoral fellows, and engaged industry, community, and government partners. Together, these aspects produce a highly participatory environment that fosters new knowledge and research and development for climate change adaptation and innovation.
With the belief that art has a critical role to play in increasing climate change adaptation awareness and well-being, the campus gallery aims to strengthen community resilience through the creation and dissemination of climate focused artwork, including artistic activities presented by artists, such as workshops, screenings, presentations, art exhibitions and more.
