Climate action: Solutions for a changing planet is the newest free online course from the SDG Academy, and starts in June 2017.

The course explores the options available, at both the community and individual level, to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions, decarbonize the economy, and ensure a safe and prosperous climate future for all.

The course provides an overview of the technologies and activities available to implement the Paris Climate Agreement; exploring key components of deep decarbonization pathways, and low emission energy strategies using long-term modeling. Modules delve into the role of agriculture and satellite monitoring in emissions reduction goals, as well as the policy priorities, business solutions, and individual public actions that can help societies transition to low carbon living.

The course is taught by professors and researchers from world-renowned institutions, including Columbia University’s Earth Institute, the Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project, the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), and the World Business Council For Sustainable Development (WBCSD).
