CLMT 5014 Climate Justice and Equitable Climate Action
Time: W 1:15 – 4:45pm (Summer Session B)
This course aims to provide students with an understanding of the disproportionate impacts of climate change at both local and global scales, as well as the varying conceptions of climate justice that have emerged as climate change unfolds. In addition, the course explores existing tools and frameworks for evaluating environmental and climate justice with an emphasis on anti-racism as well as quantitative approaches for informing and characterizing equitable climate action. Case studies and group assignments provide students with real-world context and hands-on experience in applying the knowledge (e.g., systems thinking and analysis) gained from in-class lectures and readings. Guest lectures by experts in academia, as well as frontline communities, also serve to ground course topics in reality and allow students to engage with practitioners seeking to advance environmental and climate justice through their various professions.
TAs are expected to attend all class sessions.
