Climate Justice and Equitable Adaptation online course
January 31st, 2021
Join Antioch University New England’s Center for Climate Change and Community Resilience for a series of online courses focused on the fundamentals of climate change resilience.
Climate change disproportionately affects communities of color and communities facing poverty. This module will focus on understanding how the intersections of social injustice and climate change can intensify the effect of climate impacts in communities that have been historically marginalized. This course will train current and future resilience professionals to work in a more inclusive manner with diverse constituencies and to advocate for and implement strategies that yield more equitable outcomes. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about equitable adaptation strategies and tools, as well as on-the ground case studies from a community-based perspective. Participants will learn process oriented methods and outcome oriented strategies for integrating equity considerations into climate resilience initiatives in various settings, as well as developing interpersonal and leadership skills that will allow them to effectively support equitable outcomes in their work.
