About the Course
Summers are scorching hot, winters are much colder, the monsoon rains are unpredictable, and cyclones are more ferocious. There is no denying, whether you live in the big cities or in the rural areas, the effects of climate change are obviously upon us. What is the world doing to combat climate change? What can you as an individual do to combat climate change? Changing our mindsets will be necessary to combat climate change. Join our class to discuss and exchange views on climate challenges we are facing, climate initiatives being taken at the global and regional levels, climate actions taken by the youth around the world, and climate justice movements for the most vulnerable countries. If we are all willing to change our mindsets and habits, we can still save our Planet Earth.
