The Climate Solutions course is designed and delivered by award-winning climate change experts and educators.
It tackles the biggest challenge of our time – climate change – by giving each of us the knowledge and tools we need to make a real difference.
Designed to be accessible and engaging throughout, it provides the facts you need to know about what climate change is, and the solutions you need to know so you can be part of fighting it.
You’ll learn about the solutions needed from governments and big business, how you can help to make them do more, and what you can do yourself.
This innovative course, regardless of your background, will teach you why climate change is important, allowing you to better understand the challenge it represents and, most importantly, what you can do about it.
Core topics include:
- the science behind climate change and its causes;
- the impacts it is already having and could have in the future;
- what governments and business need to do;
- how each of us can take action, from what we do at home right through to who we vote for and what stuff we choose to buy.
