In recent years we have seen a significant evolution of worldwide activism in response to the threat of escalating global climate disruptions. This course aims to offer a comprehensive critical outlook on this emerging popular movement, with particular attention to a variety of international perspectives, current policy debates, local responses to new energy developments and possible directions for the future. Additionally, students will critically examine current news on climate issues and movements, explore the agendas and methods of current movements, and develop hands-on group projects that serve to apply this knowledge to local or regional organizations and campaigns around these issues.
