Tackle the climate crisis with Global Citizen and FutureLearn

We’re excited to announce our collaboration with Global Citizen, an international education and advocacy organisation working to enact social, environmental and economic justice.

Global Citizen members will have the opportunity to turn their actions into rewards – you could win a FutureLearn course upgrade (worth up to £72) on one of our climate and sustainability courses. Whether you’re litter picking, organising an environmental demonstration, or switching to renewable energy, you’ll be able to track your actions and earn points that you can use to enter different rewards.

A course upgrade gives you exclusive access to the course content for as long as it exists on FutureLearn, so you can remind yourself what you’ve learnt whenever you like. An upgrade also allows you to earn a Certificate of Achievement when you’ve completed the course. You can use the certificate to boost your CV, impress your employer, and supercharge your career.

Discover topics including climate science and sustainability

Here at FutureLearn, we work with world-class universities and social justice organisations to create climate and sustainability courses that can help you make a difference. Every one of us has the power to work towards a more positive future – we just need to educate ourselves and learn the tools for change.

Whatever environmental area you’re interested in, we have a course to suit you. Study climate science and discover the tipping points for climate change, or learn how marine ecosystems can be managed by innovative technologies.

If you’re a lover of animal and plant life, join one of our wildlife and ecology courses to establish a closer connection with nature. If sustainable development is your passion, learn about the importance of transport planning, green infrastructure, and the SDGs.

If you want to help protect the planet and its inhabitants, our online environmental courses will increase your understanding of vital sustainable practices and the steps you can take to create a brighter future.
