‘Climate Justice: Lessons from the Global South’

Understand how we can balance human needs with caring for the planet with this free online course about climate change.


Climate change is a global problem we all must face. This course will deal with some of the key issues related to the ethical dimensions implied by climate change – learning especially from the problems faced as well as the resilience models formulated by the marginalized sectors of society or the so-called “Global South”.
