Climate Change & Environment

Climate change and care for our environment are among the most pressing issues of our time. CMU's institute to make cities smarter starts by seeking solutions on a local level, in part by taking existing data and putting it to work.

Modern cities already monitor all kinds of systems. Looking at — and acting on — all of that data in a global way leads to improved air quality, more efficient energy use, better stormwater management and improved traffic flow. Proven methods can then be deployed in other cities.
