The Global Climate Action Coalition took a pause as the leading institution, Yale, takes a break for the summer. With universities operating around the world, and inevitably, operating around different academic calendars–lots have happened between July and September. We look forward to updating you!

Today, the Yale Office of Sustainability & Office of International Affairs hired the new coordinator for the academic year 2010-2011. Here’s a bit of information we gathered on her:

Vi Nguyen, Research Assistant for Yale-Copenhagen Climate Action Coalition

Vi NguyenVi Nguyen is currently a senior at Yale College majoring in Economics with a focus in environmental management. In school, Vi has served as the Co-President of the Asian American Students Alliance, strengthening racial relations across all ethnic student groups on campus. Outside of Yale, she volunteers as a Program Manager at VietHope Inc., a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit that provides educational opportunities for financially disadvantaged students in Vietnam. After her semester abroad in Australia working on sustainability projects at the Australian National University and her fellowship in environmental cleanup in Vietnam, she’s excited to start work at the Yale Office of Sustainability! Why the Coalition and the Office of Sustainability? The world will face many challenges in the coming decades, during our generation’s time to shine. She hopes this Coalition will empower the experiences and the leadership necessary to enable us to meet these global challenges, together.
