About the course

The actual lectures of the course start on September 28th and run until 23rd November.

The course title is “Climate Change: a question of justice?” and will be held in English. 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 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.
