New Course: Connecting for Climate Change Action

Recent climate warming is the result of human activities, including fossil fuel burning and land clearance, which have increased the concentration of CO2 in our atmosphere to levels not seen in over 800,000 years. Climate change is here now as evidenced by news headlines about unprecedented drought and flooding, extreme heat and wildfires. It is the defining challenge of our times. What can we do about it?

Connecting for Climate Change Action is a new course that uses a storytelling approach to bring Western and Indigenous Sciences together to educate, encourage discussions, and motivate action on climate change. This innovative, experiential, online learning opportunity engages and stimulates learners to action to mitigating climate change.

We know that climate change is everybody’s business, which is why we are inviting you to join in our course. Improve your climate change literacy, examine systemic inequities, and promote discussion and action for people from all walks of life.
