Climate change is one of the major challenges for the international community. However, there is no intuitive approach to the problem. Rather, it can only be grasped through scientific knowledge. This is why our Climate Course explains the scientific basis of climate change, the impacts on nature and society, and identifies potential solutions – so that fact-based knowledge is available for everyone and can guide the transformation process towards a sustainable future.
Renowned climate scientists from our member institutions all over Germany give lectures about the climate change, risks and challenges. As climate reserach is a broad and interdisciplinary field they come from many disciplines to take all the facets of the earth system into consideration. Guests contributions from international experts are included.
Our course is a so-called Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). It is a form of digital education, which combines traditional and new forms of knowledge transfer. Everyone can participate. It is also a perfect opportunity for German universities to include the course in their international programs.

The scientific association Deutsches Klima-Konsortium together with the non-governmental organization WWF Germany have developed an interdisciplinary MOOC on climate change and its impacts. We have attracted renowned researches from leading German climate research institutes to this Climate Course. The project is funded by the Federal Foreign Office.
