Educate yourself on the facts of climate change

The climate crisis is the great social and political challenge of our lifetime. With temperatures reaching record highs, and flooding and wildfires becoming increasingly common around the world, it’s never been more urgent to tackle climate change and implement sustainable policies.

For the first time, the UN’s COP26 climate summit will be hosted in the UK, in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November. To mark the occasion, we’ve brought together our most popular climate courses for you to explore – and get inspired.

Education is a vital tool to tackle climate change. Whether you want to learn about the science behind the crisis, or understand how to offset your organisation’s carbon footprint, these courses will give you the tools you need to enact real change.

Learn climate change solutions from leading experts

Our courses are 100% online, and designed by top educators at some of the world’s best universities. That means you can study cutting-edge climate research from your own home, in your own time.

These courses are the ideal way to upskill in sustainability - in fields as varied as fashion and construction - or simply educate yourself on the latest thinking in climate research.

COP26’s major goals include securing global net-zero emissions by mid-century, protecting natural habitats, mobilising finance, and ensuring countries work together to halt further temperature rises.

It’s vital these goals are met, and educating yourself about the issues that matter is the best way to hold your representatives to account. With FutureLearn, that education has never been easier, or more accessible.
