Housed within the Canadian Centre for Climate Change and Adaptation (CCCCA), the UPEI School of Climate Change and Adaptation offers students and researchers the unique experience of learning climate science in the St. Peter’s Bay area of Prince Edward Island, surrounded by diverse and environmentally significant topographies. Students use highly advanced technology such as drones, virtual reality, and “big data” analytics to address the issues of climate change.
