**Description: ** Climate change is the greatest challenge of our time, and drastic climate action is needed urgently across industries and sectors to mitigate the worst of it. Universities have played a central role in generating the wide and deep evidence on climate change that exists today, but the majority of universities are unfortunately failing to address and reduce their own contribution to climate change, and they are thus failing to meet the Paris agreement targets suggested by their very own scientists. In other words, they are preaching water while drinking wine.
