Dear Climate Change enthusiasts,
A MOOC (Not a Moose) Is Coming on January 27, 2014!

We are very pleased to announce the World Bank's first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on climate change, which will be launched next month on January 27, 2014.

What the Course Covers

This course presents the most recent scientific evidence as well as some of the opportunities for urgent action on climate change. It also covers the latest knowledge and information based on cutting-edge research.

It is being offered in two tracks: (1) General Public; and (2) Policy Makers and Practitioners.

The course runs for 4 weeks, and is free of charge. You have access to the material for approximately 6 months after the course ends.

How to Sign Up

Sign up for the first delivery of the course at https://www.coursera.org/#course/warmerworld

Here are the steps for registration:

A Great Opportunity

This is also an opportunity for us - as climate change practitioners - to let our family and friends know what we are doing and help them become champions of climate change knowledge.

Climate change affects us all, so please feel free to share the registration link as widely as possible in your networks.
