Course Overview

The course explores the critical issues of climate change and its profound impacts through the lenses of equity and sustainability. In an ever-changing world, we'll delve into the interconnected challenges of climate justice, agriculture, wildfires, renewable energy sources, sea level rise, and the consequences of invasive species. Students will engage in comprehensive studies to interrogate the causes and effects of climate change, investigate public policy debates, and, most importantly, examine how these issues affect the diverse populations of our planet through hands-on activities. The course culminates with GOA’s Catalyst Exhibition, as students share projects to spark change in local communities through well-informed activism.

Note: This course is a reimagined, redesigned, retitled version of the course that was called Climate Change & Global Inequality through the 2023-2024 school year. Students who have already taken Climate Change & Global Inequality should consider choosing a different course.

Students in GOA courses will need reliable access to a computer with webcam/microphone connections, an email address (preferably school-based), a Web-conferencing app (GOA courses use Zoom), and a Word processing app (GOA courses use Google’s G Suite). When necessary, alternative arrangements may be made.
