End of course summary

In this video we outline what you have learnt during this course

So here we are, at the end of the final week! It really has been quite the journey. We hope you have enjoyed learning about climate change and carbon reduction in the built environment.

Lets recap what we have explored through the course…

In Week one, Context, you begin your learning journey by exploring why carbon and other greenhouse gases play a central role in climate change, and the role the built environment plays in either exacerbating or mitigating this issue.

In Week 2, Concepts, you explored key concepts relating to carbon and climate change such as net zero and whole life carbon

In Week 3, Cases, you delved into a variety of case studies and were given the opportunity to develop and share one of your own.

And finally, in Week 4, Change, is where we have turned to changemaking. We investigated the unique roles that different stakeholders (including you!) can play in making our built environment lower carbon.
