The UN climate summit in Paris online course – Free registration open now!

Monday, 28 Sep

Screen Shot 2015-09-03 at 11.32.29 am2015 is a big year for the international politics of climate change. Just in time for the UN climate summit in Paris in December, the Interdisciplinary Distance Learning Programme in Environmental Sciences (infernum) at Hagen University, Germany has produced a massive open online course in collaboration with the Department of Political Science at Lund University in Sweden. The course is entitled “Climate Change: a question of justice?” and will be held in English. It has been funded by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research.

The MOOC focuses on social science perspectives of climate change and features well-known experts and activists in the field of climate justice. Topics covered include the role of non-governmental organisations, the European emissions trading system, land-grabbing, divestment and degrowth. “We are keen to show that the politics of climate change is more than the international negotiations”, says Dr. Angela Oels, visiting professor at Lund University.

The actual lectures of the course start on September 28th and run until 23rd November. The course is open to all, free of charge and comes with no obligations. Students who complete a multiple choice quiz after taking the lectures can get a certificate of participation free of charge.

Anyone interested in participating or just curious can register online.

Thank you

Warm regards from Hagen and Lund,
Dr. Angela Oels, Sara Becker and Daniel Otto

    Aside from the obvious purpose of learning about climate change and how to mitigate it, this would be useful in terms of seeing how international law and international agreements are negotiated.
