Identify how societies are impacted by climate change. Understand how transformative change and governance can address these impacts. Learn directly from the stakeholders playing a key role in advancing climate adaptation.
Be part of the solution and join the Climate Adaptation Governance track of our MSc in Cultural Geography!
Accelerated climate change and wide-ranging global risks such as biodiversity loss and global pandemics require fundamental transformations of how our societies are organised and interact with the environment. We need to adapt to these risks and foster increased resilience. These efforts will require culturally-sensitive and transdisciplinary approaches to governance to bring about enduring change.
In this master's programme, you will take specialised courses in governance as well as in urban and community-based adaptation. After taking advanced skills training courses in intervention impact assessments, data collection, and analytical methods, you will conduct field research on a topic of relevance to climate adaptation governance and write your Master’s thesis.
Climate Adaptation Governance at Campus Fryslân , located in the city of Leeuwarden, is a track within the MSc in Cultural Geography. The programme offers two tracks: Sustainable Tourism & Society and Climate Adaptation Governance.
