Selected Topics in Law and Society; Climate Policy and Practice: From Norms and Goals to Action
Recognizing the urgency of the global climate crisis, students will cultivate their voice and sharpen their understanding of international climate policy, concepts, and institutions to create lasting impact in their communities and world. Deep dives into the science, economics, and legal and societal norms surrounding climate change will provide a foundation for adapting and working toward aspirational goals at all levels of engagement, from the University's Climate Action Plan to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.
