Climate Change: Impact and Solutions *NEW*

This course is a more in depth look at climate change as first presented in the winter course Climate Change: Already in Your Neighborhood. Take a closer look at climate’s impact on weather, human and animal well-being, agriculture, food and water security and even your home garden. The good news is that there are tools available right now that will help us all adapt to climate change. Along with presentations and discussions of the solutions that are possible at the state, local and individual/family levels, you will consider the economic and social cost/benefit of climate action. There will be ample opportunity in each session to discuss and ask questions.

NOTE: The one-session class (XE-702) is not a pre-requisite for this class. This course will provide additional detail without being redundant. Instructor: Sara Via, Ph.D.

Tuition: $79** (includes $40 in fees*)
