Description de ce cours : Chaque région du monde présente des facteurs de vulnérabilité au changement climatique mais est néanmoins en mesure d’atténuer les effets de ce phénomène et de renforcer sa résilience. En ratifiant l’Accord de Paris, la communauté internationale a manifesté sa volonté d’agir. En effet, sans action climatique concertée, les progrès accomplis pendant des décennies en matière de développement seront menacés : nous nous trouvons donc à un moment décisif. Ce cours présente les données scientifiques les plus récentes sur la question, explique les différentes répercussions ressenties au plan régional, décrit les stratégies d’action climatique et mentionne différents types d’action qui s’offrent à vous.

Le cours « Bassions la Chaleur: de la science à l’action climatique » se déroule sur quatre semaines. Les deux premières seront consacrées à un tour d’horizon complet des données scientifiques disponibles sur le changement climatique, puis à la description des effets du réchauffement propres à certaines régions au XXIe siècle. Les deux dernières semaines seront axées sur les stratégies d’action que divers pays et régions mettent en œuvre pour relever le défi climatique ainsi que sur la manière dont chacun d’entre nous peut agir.

Format du cours

Ce MOOC est conçu selon un rythme hebdomadaire : il prévoit les ressources, les activités et les exercices qui vous sont destinés durant chacune des quatre semaines du cours. Chaque semaine, divers matériels pédagogiques seront mis à votre disposition :
