Class Details

In 2014, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon declared: climate change is “the defining issue of our age. It is defining our present. Our response will define our future.” In this tutorial, we will examine a broad range of proposed, and currently implemented, policy responses to this grand challenge. We will employ policy analysis to evaluate these strategies’ effectiveness and viability. This tutorial will consider approaches at varied scales (ranging from university campuses to coordinated global action) and addressing different sectors (including transportation, energy generation, and food production).
