Climate change has been identified as one of the world’s most wicked problems. However, most governments have been slow to respond to the challenge of climate mitigation and adaptation. The Climate Science and Policy Climate Science and Policy Certificate, which is part of the Sustainable Energy MicroMasters Program and is offered by EdX in partnership with University of Queensland - UQx University of Queensland - UQx, will help you to understand the size of the problem and policy options that could start to make a difference.
You will be presented with the evidence as to why climate change is a growing problem for our society. Starting with early data produced from ice cores millions of years ago through to the latest thinking on the action required to address the problem, this course will equip you to identify key strategies for your organisation or government to implement a mitigation agenda.
You will develop skills in scenario planning made famous by Shell in the 1960’s. Being able to think strategically about future world scenarios and impacts on business, is a skill that directors, managers and others looking to advance their careers across the climate/energy nexus will find invaluable.
