In a few weeks’ time, politicians, scientists and activists from around the world will meet in Bonn to discuss approaches to resolving the climate crisis. For those wanting to become knowledgeable about the subject before the negotiations in November, the Deutsches Klima-Konsortium together with the environmental organisation WWF Germany, a scientific association, have created an English online course on climate change: Climate Change, Risks and Challenges (#ClimateCourse).
In the online course, leading climate researchers, including Prof. Dr Mojib Latif from GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel, concisely impart basic knowledge on climate change: its causes, its impacts, and how it can be mitigated. Guest scientists from India, the Maldives and Africa talk about the regions that are already clearly experiencing the impacts of global warming. Helena Humphrey, journalist at Deutsche Welle, moderates the #ClimateCourse.
Registration open now
The course consists of six chapters, each comprising short video clips, quizzes and supplementary interactive teaching materials. At the end of the course, participants receive a certificate as evidence of their further education. The course is designed for students, teachers, scientific staff, authorities, coordinators for climate projects, decision makers, editors and the press. Applications for the free course starting on October 1st are open now at https://mooin.oncampus.de/ClimateCourse.
The #ClimateCourse, funded by the Federal Foreign Office, is a further development of the German course “Klimawandel und seine Folgen”. More than 10,000 people have already participated in this course. The German course is accessible at www.klima-konsortium.de/mooc.
