At CSCS we are building networks through our Campus Sustainability Ambassadors, speakers bureau, congregational networking in advocacy and pastoral ecology, and by connecting researchers from Anabaptist institutions.

At CSCS we are developing leaders through our student leadership training, global & marginalized voices program, pastoral ecology training, and support of innovative researchers at Anabaptist institutions.

At CSCS we are inspiring action by supporting student work on-campus and after graduation, creating resources, providing opportunities for Anabaptists to take action on climate change, and supporting researchers promoting novel approaches to addressing climate change.

Who We Are

The Center for Sustainable Climate Solutions (CSCS) is a collaborative initiative of Eastern Mennonite University, Goshen College, and Mennonite Central Committee to lead Anabaptist efforts to respond to the challenges of climate change.


What We Do

Launched in the fall of 2016 by a gift from Ray Martin (read more about the launch here), CSCS advances thinking and action in Anabaptist and
other faith communities to address climate change as one of the most crucial moral challenges of our time. We work towards climate justice by inspiring action, developing leadership, and
building networks.

The Center’s primary areas of engagement are in 1) resourcing student leaders/campus advocacy groups, 2) equipping pastors and congregational leaders, 3) researching best practices and innovative solutions for climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts, and 4) motivating communities through stories and perspectives of those most affected by climate change, and who suffer climate injustice.
