Leading academic staff from 8 Universities across Europe have been involved in producing these resources. They include natural and social scientists and engineers who have come together in a truly interdisciplinary endeavour. They comprise three postgraduate modules, each with a textbook and a workbook, and a cross-cutting water case study:
Module 1: Introduction to climate change in the context of sustainable development
Module 2: The lived experience of climate change
Module 3: Interdisciplinary methodologies for investigation into the ‘lived experience’ of climate change
Water case study on the Nile and Rhine River basins.
Individuals and institutions may use the resources flexibly. For example, institutions may accredit by adding formal assessment, and then each module will amount to 100-120 hours of study . They can also be combined as two or three modules into a single module. Alternatively, they may be used by individuals and institutions in whole or in part as resources without accreditation to support Masters dissertations . Finally they may be adapted and reversioned for any individual and institutional purposes provided that the terms of the Creative Commons Licence are adhered to.
