The World Bank’s first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on climate change, which will be launched this month on January 27, 2014. This course presents the most recent scientific evidence as well as some of the opportunities for urgent action on climate change. It also covers the latest knowledge and information based on cutting-edge research.
It is being offered in two tracks: (1) General Public; and (2) Policy Makers and Practitioners. The course runs for 4 weeks, and is free of charge. You have access to the material for approximately 6 months after the course ends.
Sign up for the first delivery of the course at: www.coursera.org/#course/warmerworld
This is also an opportunity for us, as climate change practitioners, to let our family and friends know what we are doing and help them become champions of climate change knowledge.
