Date(s) - 04/15/2017 - 06/09/2017
This 8 week online course on Climate Change covers the basic science of climate change and provides an understanding of how climate disruption impacts us today and will continue to affect us in the future. Course participants will explore ethical questions related to climate change and address them in the context of the spiritual teachings of the world’s religions, especially those of the Baha’i Faith.
The course helps participants to consider changes in lifestyle and community action for environmental and social responsibility. It shows how to rise above partisan politics and to use both science and religion for the well-being of humankind. The materials contain numerous resources for those who want to go more deeply into the issues. Course activities include reading, watching videos, and interacting with others in an international classroom setting. This is not a massive online course. Everyone has a personal mentor assigned and active participants get to know each other. People of all religious background are welcome to participate.
Faculty are Christine Muller, Rhode Island (USA), Arthur Lyon Dahl, PhD, Geneva (Switzerland), and Laurent Mesbah, PhD, Sarajevo (Bosnia-Herzegovina)
