Climate Advocacy Programme

While humanity is already witness to the damaging effects of climate change, the power to prevent catastrophic climate change sits with us all. Our ability to tackle climate change is determined by the actions we take and the decisions we make. At Heriot-Watt University, we acknowledge the pressing need for immediate action and recognise our duty to our students, staff and the communities in which we operate.

We are developing a course to enable our global community to not just take action in charting a path to a safer future, but to do so with confidence. Through the provision of comprehensive knowledge grounded in scientific evidence and a commitment to fostering values of equity and compassion, we aim to create a global network of informed and empowered climate advocates.

The Climate Advocacy course seeks to equip each member of our community with the essential tools to effect positive change. Through the cumulative impact of individual changes big and small, we can collectively contribute to averting a climate catastrophe.

The development of resources will be an on-going process, in which everyone is invited to share their thoughts, experiences and expertise. Every module release will be paired with a process of feedback and consultation. To make a programme that is for you, we want to make it with you.
