Network Climate Action: Scaling Up Your Climate Impact

5-week online course
April 7 - May 12, 2020

Many of us want to do something about climate change, but individual actions can feel inadequate in the face of the looming crisis. In the Network Climate Action: Scaling up your Impact online course, you will learn what the latest research says about how to scale up your individual actions through your social networks. You will choose a climate action you take yourself and apply social influence research to persuade your family, friends, colleagues, or social media followers to also take that action. You will be part of a unique online community that is applying innovative, exciting, and evidence-based approaches to fight climate change!

In this course, participants will:

  1. Describe the feasibility and effectiveness of actions to mitigate greenhouse gases across different countries and contexts.
  2. Implement an action to reduce greenhouse gases themselves and among their social network.
  3. Critically reflect on the results of their network climate action and write a one-page report of their action and reflections.
  4. Participate actively in a global online community of climate-concerned citizens.
