The Climate Change and Health - From Science to Action Specialization is offered by Coursera in partnership with Yale.

Climate change is arguably the greatest public health threat we face. To address it successfully, health and environmental professionals, advocates, and others need to acquire new skills and a deeper understanding of its challenges and solutions. 

This specialization is for those who wish to understand the impact of climate change on health and are committed to protecting the health of populations using the knowledge and skills they will acquire.

Applied Learning Project

Learners will apply the course content through projects in which they identify how climate change affects health in a specific location, devise an adaptation action to address this negative impact, and create a communications campaign to educate a target audience about the issue.
