Mitigation of climate change is one of the most important challenges of our times. To prevent irreversible damage to human societies and the environment, it was agreed that world countries should limit the global average temperature rise to well below 2 °C or even to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels.
But where to start, and how to take action?
This 4-course program is designed for the next generation of policy policy-makers, sustainability consultants or professionals and students from various fields who want to obtain basic knowledge about climate change and to get an overview of mitigation strategies in various industries and organizations. It will provide you with knowledge and basic skills and tools to design a concrete action plan to make your organization climate-neutral.
In the first three courses, you will get insights into the what and how of greenhouse gas emission reductions: what are technologies and behavioural changes that are effective, how to analyze their potential, cost-effectiveness and feasibility, and which policies and strategies can be used to implement them. In the fourth course, you will integrate those insights into action and learn to define targets and develop a feasible action plan for an organization to reduce its carbon footprint and become climate-neutral.
We invite you to join this journey, bring your own experiences and challenges and to discuss these with like-minded peers who want to tackle humanity’s greatest challenge just like you!
