WUSICE (Washington University Students for International Collaboration on the Environment) was founded in 2010 by undergraduate students interested in facilitating dialogue and collaboration about climate change among the Washington University community. Every year since then, WUSICE has sent a student delegation to the COP to research specific issues and bring back information on the social, political, technological, and economic dimensions of international climate change issues. Participation in WUSICE is not limited to the conference, however, and students who do not attend the COP work year-round to bring speakers and events to campus that educate the community on international perspectives.
