Dalyko aprašymas

Our warming planet is transforming the natural world and our societies, and it is doing so in alarming
ways. To understand climate change, we need to acknowledge its many aspects and study it in a
holistic, multidisciplinary way. Accordingly, this course aims to address the climate change issue in a
collaborative way by bringing together the perspectives of all of ISM’s undergraduate study
programmes – communications, management, technology, finance, politics, and economics. We will
address several important questions: what is the basic science behind climate change? What are the
sources of emissions? What are scientists predicting about the changes in climate? What will the
impact be on human well-being and the natural world? How might climate change affect Europe and
specifically Lithuania and the Baltic region? Do we have moral obligations to the planet and to future
generations? How can we effectively communicate these issues to the public and mobilise climate
action? What technologies exist, or might be invented, to slow climate change? Is sustainable
development possible? What can we do individually, locally, and in business settings.
