Inhalt der Veranstaltung

This is a course offered in German.

The basics of climate protection and climate change strategies for politics as well as frequently asked questions are addressed in an interdisciplinary way. Human activities have raised the greenhouse gas concentration in the atmosphere since the beginning of the industrialization. The most significant cause of it is the burning of fossil fuels like oil, coal or gas which causes the release of carbon dioxide. This is further aggravated by deforestation. In this course several aspects of this theme are discussed, e.g. climate change and its outcome for different systems or the international contractions for climate protection (like Kyoto protocol). Furthermore the lectures of this course emphasize the importance of the environment in regard to elements like air, water and earth.


The course is open to students of every discipline. You can receive 3 Creditpoints with a workload of circa 90 hours. This time period includes watching and working through the educational videos, revising the presentational slides, dealing with the exercises, reading additional literature and preparing for the exam. The exam will be an online test, which you can complete at a nearby university.

The educational videos can generally be used by anybody on any level. Even school teachers can incorporate the provided material into their own classes or other groups (e.g. companies) can profit, too.

If you have any questions of suggestions fell free to contact the module responsible.

This lecture is offered by Lecturers of universities of Bremen. It has been produced 2010/11 for the eGeneral Studies at the University of Bremen.
