Professionals working in the area of climate action leadership engage in facilitation of diverse collaborations across complex social, scientific, and political boundaries to mobilize knowledge for climate mitigation and adaptation. This course builds knowledge, practices, and real-world experience for participants to engage in this multi-and trans-disciplinary work. Working with a faculty supervisor, students will develop a practitioner portfolio that reflects their climate action leadership learning and competencies to date, and details a plan for nine credits of customized, relevant graduate learning. The portfolio will reflect each student’s individual competency profile and learning and/or professional goals. Students will be required, as part of the work in this course, to engage in real world action in a context related to course objectives. The practice-based connections to be made in the course are not designed by RRU but instead are led by the student in discussion and with support from the course instructor and participant.
