MOOC Climate Change & Health – A course for understanding the health stakes of climate change

The Centre Virchow-Villermé developed with the Professor Rainer Sauerborn (University of Heidelberg) the comprehensive MOOC “Climate change and Health”. Aimed at explaining the links in between climate and health, it will review issues such as direct and indirect impacts, adaptation, and co-benefits. Part of a series of three MOOCs dedicated to this topic, it will translate existing scientific knowledge for a general audience.

« Climate Change & Health »: a MOOC for everyone to become familiar with this issue

IPPC authors and experts from 10 countries will answer the following questions: which diseases will increase? Which populations are vulnerable? What can the world do to limit the impact of climate change on health? What citizen actions, what policies are needed? In addition of explaining the nature of health impacts worldwide, this MOOC will also highlight some best practices from around the world in adaptation strategies and in the promotion of health co-benefits.

The aim of this course will be to give citizens the opportunity to better understand the stakes of climate change and health globally and within their national context. In order to do so Professor Sauerborn and the pedagogical team of the Centre will work with the participants in analyzing their country as a case study in order to understand the limits and strengths of their own national climate adaptation plan. Specific target groups will be set up the discussion forum in order to allow participants of countries to discuss these policies and to pool together specific diseases topics, e.g malnutrition or epidemics.

A course for citizens to better understand their country policy

This five weeks MOOC is dedicated to every citizen, without any specific background required. Health professionals may have a special interest and are very welcome, so are teachers and journalists, who may use this MOOC to disseminate the evidence provided. Provided in English it will offer free access to the MOOC course materials: selected scientific articles, quizzes, discussion forum and Q&A Youtube videos during the course.

This MOOC is part of a series of three courses that have been developed at the Centre Virchow-Villermé. The first course “Climate Change & Health for Policy Makers – Why health is key for climate negotiations?” was broadcasted on Iversity in October. The last course, Climate Change and heath within the West African Context, will be available in September 2016.
