Klimat och samhälle

Climate change has become one of the defining social and environmental challenges of our time. In light of the public and political attention that the issue has gained, the need for informed and critical perspectives on this important topic is more urgent than ever.

About the course Climate Change and Society

The course provides an interdisciplinary and state-of-the-art perspective on climate change with a particular emphasis on its social, economic, political and cultural dimensions. As a students you will receive a close understanding of the intertwined social and biophysical dynamics of both drivers and impacts of climate change, and of the different solutions that are being proposed.

The course is structured around four key themes:

  1. Drivers and dynamics of climate change
  2. Politics and economics of reducing greenhouse gas emissions
  3. Adaptation and loss and damage
  4. Social narratives and imaginaries about climate change by different actor groups

The course also pursues a number of cross-cutting themes, for example on the unequal dimensions to both climate change responsibility and vulnerability, and a focus on questions of power for understanding the obstacles to, and opportunities, for climate action.

Learning Outcomes

The course provides tools for students to critically assess the current direction of climate politics and the solutions that are being suggested. At the same time, the course also seeks to empower students as agents of change, who understand the encompassing scope of climate change and can define and pursue practical solutions in a variety of social contexts.
