Describe the sustainable development goals and their links to climate change
Explore responses to climate change: mitigation, adaptation and geoengineering
Identify methods of making agriculture more sustainable and explore the viability of these methods
Debate the viability of solutions that help strengthen the terrestrial biosphere carbon sink
Explain possible solutions to reducing ocean acidification
Discuss methods and policies being implemented to reduce plastic in oceans
Describe how buildings and cities can be designed to be more sustainable
Apply the theme of ‘sustainable communities’ to the developing world
Man-made climate change is one of the biggest threats to the world. The effects are already being seen through receding glaciers, ocean acidification and an increasingly vulnerable food supply. It’s vital we work to find solutions to climate change.
On this course you will explore solutions to this global challenge, including mitigation, adaptation and geo-engineering, which can help avoid the most dangerous climate changes and increase the resilience of societies and ecosystems to climate changes that cannot be avoided.
You don’t need any prior knowledge of climate change, just an interest in science, nature and the environment. However it might be useful to have completed the sister course to this one: Climate Change: The Science.
