Premiere of MOOC on climate transition of cities

To really speed up the climate transition, many people need to understand, be engaged and be able to contribute. Lund University, in collaboration with Viable Cities, has now launched a Massive Online Open Course, MOOC: Cities, Climate and Change: Pathways and Opportunities.

The free course explores in five modules how we can create and achieve climate-neutral and sustainable cities with a mission-driven approach. The course provides insights and inspiration from Sweden, Europe and the world, with contributions from ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability, Vinnova, the European Commission, SEI - Stockholm Environment Institute, and WRI Ross Center for Sustainable Cities as well as municipalities in Malmö, Sweden; Fort Collins, USA; Bonn, Germany; Melbourne, Australia; and Kampala, Uganda.

The course focuses on efforts to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions but also links to climate adaptation, resilience and social justice.

The course is given in English.
