Climate Change and Questions of Justice explores the causes and effects of global warming and delves into questions of who is most responsible for and vulnerable to the changing climate. Students grapple with how to respond to climate change at local, national, and international levels in ways that are both effective and fair.
Students will take on the roles of participants in a UN conference on climate change and deliberate three distinct options for international climate change policy. By exploring three clearly defined alternatives, students gain a deeper understanding of the values underlying specific policy recommendations and the trade-offs that accompany them, ultimately articulating their own views on the future of climate change policy.
