Learn how to drive the social change that is fundamentally required for an effective response to climate change

Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC) together with colleagues at Stockholm University has launched a new MOOC which will give students an in-depth exploration of our current situation and what we can do to combat the crisis.

The MOOC, entitled Taking on the Climate Crisis with Social Change, is designed for anyone who is concerned about the current climate crisis and its underlying social causes, and wants to do something about it.

Specifically, the course is structured around nine activities, which makes for a very dynamic learning experience.

Each topic is carefully curated to show you how Earth’s climate works, how nature and culture are entwined, how to repair the damage that we have done to the climate, and how to live in a way that prevents future climate change and harm.

Students will learn how to drive the social change that is fundamentally required for an effective response to climate change so that humanity can build a sustainable future.

Says Miriam Huitric, one of the lectures and the director of studies at the SRC: “Tackling climate change is going to need a range of solutions and big changes, and the course provides some concrete and important areas to focus on.”

The course can be done for free during a 5-week period or at a cost with additional added benefits.
