Join Antioch University New England’s Center for Climate Change and Community Resilience for a series of online courses focused on the fundamentals of climate change resilience.

Climate change disproportionately affects communities of color and communities facing poverty. This module will focus on understanding how the intersections of social injustice and climate change can intensify the effect of climate impacts in communities that have been historically marginalized. This course will train current and future resilience professionals to work in a more inclusive manner with diverse constituencies and to advocate for and implement strategies that yield more equitable outcomes. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about equitable adaptation strategies and tools, as well as on-the ground case studies from a community-based perspective. Participants will learn process oriented methods and outcome oriented strategies for integrating equity considerations into climate resilience initiatives in various settings, as well as developing interpersonal and leadership skills that will allow them to effectively support equitable outcomes in their work.

Climate Impacts: Vulnerability and Adaptation Planning

Local and regional governments are leaders in climate change due to their unique position to make a wide range of decisions that can mitigate and adapt to our changing climate. Because they are on the frontline, many communities have conducted vulnerability assessments and engaged in adaptation planning. This module will enable participants to assess impacts to a business, community, or sector based on specific climate projections for a specific locale.

Climate Impacts: Communication, Facilitation, and Stakeholder Capacity Building

Collective actions at the societal level (civic or political action behaviors) include involvement and support of policies, plans, and funding for implementation of municipal projects that could increase local climate resilience. Community engagement with the issue of climate change typically is lacking at the local level. How individuals feel about climate change, how much they know about the issue, and how they act are all types of engagement that are needed for societal change.
