In this course, we will learn about the causes of climate change and pollution and the impact both may have on living organisms including humans. We will also focus on answering the big question: What can we do to reverse or slow down the negative trends? Through a combination of interactive lessons, discussions, hands-on activities, and real-world examples, students will embark on a captivating exploration of the complex topic of climate change.
The course begins by laying a solid foundation, introducing students to the basic principles of climate science. They will learn about Earth's climate system, the greenhouse effect, and the role of human activities in contributing to global warming. Students will examine the impacts of climate change on ecosystems, biodiversity, weather patterns, and the lives of people around the world.
As students delve deeper into the subject, they will explore the interconnectedness of various factors influencing climate change. They will investigate renewable and non-renewable energy sources, analyzing their pros and cons and understanding the importance of transitioning towards cleaner, more sustainable alternatives. Students will also explore the concept of carbon footprint and discover ways to reduce their own environmental impact through responsible consumption, waste management, and conservation efforts.
By the end of the course, students will emerge as informed and empowered climate ambassadors, equipped with a deeper understanding of the causes and consequences of climate change, as well as the practical actions they can take to create a more sustainable and resilient future.
