The Michigan Climate Coalition (MCC) seeks to foster synergy through information, communication and action, in order to assist Michigan in responding to climate change.
The MCC was founded in November 2010 by MSU Climate Change Leadership Fellows and Michiganders from the public and private sectors – from NGOs, businesses, government, and educational institutions. It is open to all with an interest in climate science, energy efficiency, sustainability and related disciplines.
The MCC is modeled on the Wisconsin Initiative on Climate Change Impacts (WICCI). Like WICCI, the MCC seeks to enhance networking and collaboration, communication and action within the state and beyond.
The MCC will provide a flexible basis for collaborative action on the pressing and under-addressed challenge of climate change to Michigan.
The MCC has formed topic-specific subgroups that organize climate change activities, research and initiatives by sector. These working groups, led by key contacts from that sector, address different aspects of climate.
