Climate change is global but its impact is local, which is why awareness must be created at the community level, while alternatives to fossil fuels and other non-renewable energies must be explored to control the alarming increase in CO2 emissions.

“There are many Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that the United Nations (UN) has formulated to address climate change. However, for this to be successful, we need to bring it to the grassroots and educate people on their adaptation. said Professor Paramita Sen of Bronx Community College (BCC), CUNY.
To encourage climate change education and assist students in climate change and weather research, Sri Sri University, with support from CUNY, installed an automated solar weather station on its campus on the inaugural day of the international conference.

Professor Neal Phillip, who installed the weather station with his team, said it would help understand different weather parameters on a very micro-scale.
