New climate course

Would you like to learn more about climate change? Follow our MOOC this fall.

The University of Bergen (UiB) and the Bjerknes Centre’s internet course on climate change, Causes of climate change, starts next week. This is the fourth year for this MOOC (Massive Open Online Course).

This year the course is also part of the ordinary course plan at the UiB, through the new interdisciplinary course SDG213. SDG213 is based on the UN Sustainable Development Goal number 13: to take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.

SDG213 will be taught by lecturers from the Faculties of Mathematics and Natural Sciences and Social Sciences at the UiB, as wells as from the Norwegian School of Economics.

With 55 students the on-site course is full, but the MOOC is open for everyone. You can find more information and sign up here
