Course content

A learning experience about different dimensions of climate change

The conversation about climate is a conversation about movement. Scientists point to the slow but steady upward movement of the planet’s temperature. Activists demand movement and change from governments and policymakers. Unprecedented global youth movements have emerged and shifted public discourse. New and more extreme climatic events are forcibly displacing people from their homes or livelihoods, and depleted natural resources threaten stability and peace. Still, beliefs and behaviours about climate are often unmoving. You get to explore the key debates around climate through a curated audio-visual lecture series, providing materials from experts, journalists and practitioners. See the weekly topics below for more on the content of this Virtual Exchange.

Partnering for 'Climate Movements' 

Virtual Exchange (VE) delivers international experiences for students all over the world and has been steadily growing over the last two decades. At the Sharing Perspectives Foundation, we have implemented large scale Virtual Exchanges over the past decade and welcome partners to take part in our newest iteration of the virtual exchange on Climate Change. 

Offer this opportunity to your students

We offer this VE course opportunity to universities at a small financial contribution which reflects the minimum budget to run this international VE, while offering you savings when investing with more students and or over multiple semesters. Our VE courses can be used to fulfil a component of a larger capacity-building project. The course can also be offered for students from only your network or alliance and is a perfect fit to serve internationalization objectives and especially Internationalization at Home agendas. Find out more about the possibilities for offering this Virtual Exchange ‘Climate Movements’ to your students in this brochure.

We accept partners on a rolling basis and can accommodate a maximum of 30 in 2023.
