This is an dynamic animation video showing total emissions and the rate of emissions of New York City. The video makes carbon missions feel more real and engaging.
This introductory e-course produced by UN CC Learn contains six modules: Climate Change Science, International Legal and Policy Framework for Climate Change, Climate Change Adaptation, Climate Change Mitigation, Climate Change Finance, Planning for Climate Change.
This e-learning course contains video lectures and exercises based on the use of different models/simulators to explain the science of climate change. Several factors that influence the climate of planet Earth are discussed and the course also includes material related to the “forecast for humans’ impact on Earth’s climate”.
In this lesson plan, students learn about the impacts of climate change on human health. The lesson plan contains several modules and case studies on issues such as Temperature-related Death and Illness; Air Quality Impacts; Vector-Borne Diseases; Water-Related Illness; Food Safety; Mental Health and Well-Being.
This tool helps students learn about the link between climate change and water, and the resulting social and cultural impacts. The material includes cases studies on drought, flooding, and glacier loss in Bolivia.
|In this lesson plan, students are introduced to the concept of ‘Climate Refugees’, learn about how climate change is forcing large populations to migrate from their homes and what should the societal response be to such a human migration caused by climate change.|
This educational resource consists of eight modules that situates climate justice within the context of British Columbia’s ecology, history, economy and community. The modules are Introduction to Climate Justice, Re-imagining our Food System, Transportation Transformation, Rethinking Waste, Fracking Town Hall, Green Industrial Revolution, Imagining the Future We Want, Challenges to Change.
|This micro-lecture as part of an e-learning course introduces the linkages between climate change and food security and how global hunger and climate change can be addressed simultaneously.|
This course uses case studies from various African cities to illustrate urban resilience and adaptation in the context of climate change.
This video game provides an immersive learning experience about how climate change may affect our cities and neighborhoods in the future. Players can make policy decisions and lifestyle choices to adapt to and mitigate the impact of climate change in a futuristic scenario based in a local setting.
In this game, students will make decisions and policies to improve the resilience of a city in the face of climate change-related events. The uncertainty of such events poses challenges that require students to understand and choose the best overall strategies for climate resilience.
In this print-and-play version of a tabletop game, students lead fictional cities and assume decision-making roles to help their cities combat and adapt to climate change. Players must prepare for events such as heat waves, ocean acidification, hurricanes, and sea-level rise through planning and management of resources.
|In this audio podcast from the Climate History Podcast, “Professor Dagomar Degroot interviews Professor John McNeill (Georgetown University) about the Anthropocene: the proposed geological epoch in which Earth’s environment is most profoundly shaped by humanity.”|
|This audio podcast discusses how glaciers in the Yukon are responding to climate change. It focuses on changes in the physical characteristics of these glaciers and several methods used by glaciologists to track changes due to climate and weather.|
|Ted McIntyre in conversation with D.R. Tucker discussing public health risks of climate change following the release of ‘The Climate and Health Assessment’ Report from the White House (USA).|
