This Climate Change - Cross-Disciplinary Challenges and Solutions course from Aarhus University will cover the scientific backgrounds for understanding climate change, including the drivers of climate change, both natural and anthropogenic, together with associated problems related to for example politics, economy,  agriculture, and human migration. 


Key Features

Earth’s climate is changing, and this raises a multitude of associated problems for society. The required solutions need to combine knowledge and skills from all sciences. Therefore, this course draws on expertise of experts from humanities, natural and technical sciences as well as business and social sciences. Also, potential solutions will be presented and discussed by drawing on knowledge from all disciplines. 

The Climate Change - Cross-Disciplinary Challenges and Solutions course from Aarhus University will bring together students with backgrounds in different university sciences to form cross-disciplinary groups that address different specific issues of climate change through case-work.

The objective of the course is three-fold:

  • To arm the participating students with a cross-disciplinary understanding of the challenges related to climate change, including the scientific basis and drivers of climate change and the associated societal challenges relating to e.g. the environment, technology, economics, and culture.
  • To empower the participating students, through case-based group studies, with skills in cross-disciplinary analysis and development of solutions to challenges relating to climate change.
  • To help students build a cross-disciplinary network by which they can continue further climate-related university studies as well as climate-related entrepreneurship later in life. 

Programme Structure

At the end of the course, the student should demonstrate the ability to:

  • Identify and specify climate related problems in relation to an aspect of life style, society and/or production.
  • Produce, in a multidisciplinary group, case- and solution-oriented approaches to a specific climate-related problem.
  • Discuss and communicate interdisciplinary approaches to climate-related challenges, combining natural science with one or more other sciences, depending on the specific group-case study.
  • Facilitate and qualify debate on the possibilities and limitations of climate initiatives/solutions.
