INOGOV is delighted to announce the launch of a new Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Polycentric Climate Change Governance. This course will equip researchers and policymakers with cutting-edge insights on how to describe, analyse, and improve climate change governance across local to global scales.
The landscape of climate change governance is in flux: no longer the exclusive focus of global negotiations, as more and more actors are becoming involved in taking climate action in diverse ways. From low-carbon buildings to urban experimentation and smart cities, to transnational networks and private sector innovation, climate governance is rapidly becoming more complex and ‘polycentric’. Yet our concepts of climate governance often do not yet match this emerging reality.
This course provides an outstanding opportunity to develop your knowledge of these issues. The course is based on the Open Access Cambridge University Press book: “Governing Climate Change: Polycentricity in Action?” (Edited by Andrew Jordan, Dave Huitema, Harro van Asselt and Johanna Forster). Completing this course will place you at the forefront of academic thinking, and equip you with new perspectives and tools for advancing effective climate action in your own work.
Please take a look at the video animation below, introducing the idea of polycentric climate governance and the INOGOV MOOC. Further details of the MOOC can be found here.
