Global Warming and Climate Change

Kofi Annan's Campaign for Climate Justice

Welcome to our course on environmental problems. Your and your childrens' future is at risk if we do not change our habits and take action for a better planet.
This unit deals with various environmental aspects and you will also meet people who decided to take some action.
All videos, texts and other activities are from the internet and you will certainly find more relevant material by browsing the internet.
As this course has been created in 2009 when there was the world climate council in Copenhagen, a lot of material is based on this event.
Below you will find an empty glossary - waiting for you to fill it with words related to global warming, energy, climate change.
