Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Climate change is neither about weather nor about technology pure and simple; climate change is the ultimate social issue of our time. With governments, activists, scientists, ‘dirty’ companies and regular people often clashing on both the significance and urgency of the problem, as well as how to address what has been dubbed both a ‘crisis’ and an ‘emergency’, deeper insights into the science and policy dimensions of climate change are needed to separate the politics, propaganda, greenwashing and science.
In this class, we will explore what climate change is, and learn about the international governance responses that have been set up to address it. We will apply a lens of climate justice to better navigate the power dimensions, understand who is the most vulnerable to the impacts of and the responses to climate change, and why that is the case. Using case studies, we will examine core concepts such as Loss and Damage, Adaptation, Just transitions, Climate colonialism and Climate activism.
