Climate in Crisis: Strategy and Advocacy
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg
This theory and practice track examines theoretical frameworks for understanding climate change and concrete cases that shed light on the complexity of managing it. In this, the practical component of the Climate in Crisis track, we explore several domestic energy and climate policy case studies, examining the competing roles played by various interest groups that influence legislative and regulatory outcomes, with a focus on differing organizational advocacy strategies. Once we have mastered organizational advocacy strategies, students bring those tools to bear on the most recent US Federal policy mandates and legislation. In 229T, students will complement this work with a deep dive into the nature of public goods and climate change policy, among other crucial considerations.
Restricted to students who matriculated in Fall2020 or later.

HNUH229P pairs with HNUH229T to complete the "Climate in Crisis" Theory/Practice track. This pair of courses can be taken in any order. fhis track will be offered at least through the 2021-22 academic year.
