This Massive Open Online Course, hosted on the education platform Coursera, is free and contains a snapshot of the most recent scientific evidence and practical actions on what you can do about tackling climate change, a challenge that affects us all. Explore forward-looking scenarios about your world: Will your community be drier or wetter? Will it be hotter or colder? How will climate change affect your food supply and your water? Can cities be made greener? What steps can you and your community take to prepare for some of these changes?
Get insights and valuable perspectives from leading thinkers on climate change, such as Dr. Carol Turley, Senior Scientist at the Plymouth Marine Laboratory, Dr. Peter Gleick, President of the Pacific Institute for Studies in Development, Environment and Security, and Dr. Thomas Karl, Director at the NOAA National Climatic Data Center.
