Social Change & Climate Change
PubH 6133, 3 credits
This course introduces students to the social dimensions of climate change. The course will offer students an opportunity to become well versed in climate drivers and mitigation; impacts, vulnerability and adaptation; and communication and social change. We will explore how psychological, social structural, normative, institutional, and behavioral factors function in all these domains, seeing how they influence the causes of, consequences of, and solutions for climate change. Synchronous sessions will be spent engaging in planned group exercises and group presentations. Additionally, we will dig deeply into the readings, so students should come to class well prepared to explore their understanding of each assigned reading.
