Medium description

We are in a climate emergency. The actions we all choose to take over the next decade will decide whether we succeed or fail to meet the biggest challenge to our civilisation in the 21st century.

You will 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.

What you'll learn:

  • What climate change is, and what causes it
  • Why it’s important to you, everyone you know, and all life on our planet
  • What governments and big business need to do
  • How you can tackle climate change in every facet of your life.

Taught by instructors with decades of experience in climate change and online learning, this course is a collaboration between leading experts in the University of Edinburgh and the Royal Scottish Geographical Society.
