As climate change has accelerated to the level of global emergency, students all over the world are asking important questions about the future and how we can secure a just and livable climate. This course is a cross-disciplinary look at the many solutions we can implement to reduce the harms of climate change, both through climate mitigation and adaptation. Students will practice envisioning and evaluating climate responses from the perspectives of effectiveness and justice, and will consider applications of various climate solutions within our region. The course will use a "flipped classroom" model, meeting once a week in person (Tuesdays) for discussions and activities, and the remaining meeting will be done asynchronously online through video modules from the University of California System’s Bending the Curve project.
NOTE: This course is offered as a hybrid with in-person required meeting times as stated and online component as asynchronous (no required meeting time).
