Climate change: island life in a volatile world


Unit image

The unit uses the example of climate change to highlight the dynamic and volatile character of the planet, and how globalisation links together, in often unequal ways, people and places across the world. The unit focuses on the potentially momentous impact of global environmental change on Pacific Islands like Tuvalu. It introduces students to geographical ways of thinking about the world.

This unit is an adapted extract from the Open University course Living in a globalised world (DD205). [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]
