Environmental Justice Institute (on its own account)
Playlist of the current virtual course on "Climate Change and Climate Justice" aired on the EJI Youtube channel
By Götz Kaufmann, 2016-04-30
As we have announced on March 20, a teaching pilot in the virtual classroom started dealing with the question of Environmental Justice in the context of Climate Change. The seminar has participants from Free University Berlin, Phillips University Marburg, Christian-Albrechts University in Kiel, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, University of British Columbia, "Sapienza" University of Rome, and interested persons from Bahia in Brazil.
Several members of the Environmental Justice Institute (EJI) are delivering guest lectures as part of the course. The EJI intends to store this knowledge for eternity and provide the discussions and arguments for the general public. This is why the virtual lectures are recorded and published with the permission of the participants in the Youtube channel of the EJI. We want to share this knowledge also with the interested academic community by both fostering the usage of new technology for the purpose of more interdisciplinarity and internationality in Environmental Justice research and encouraging the international community of researchers in our field to join the concourse.
The EJI furthermore seeks to continue and extend this pilot to a regular offer at several universities. For the promotion of this new idea of teaching and learning together with people from around the world in real time, we want to invite representatives from all institutions to get in touch with us with perspective of the upcoming winter term (2016/17). To show the rich possibilities and the opportunity that is provided by the virtual classroom lectures, the EJI has released today the second and distilled of now weekly updated broadcasts from the lectures as a playlist (you find it here).
If you liked the sessions that are displayed so far and want to stay informed about new releases from the EJI Youtube channel, we are happy to see you subscribing by clicking here.
If you are interested in participating as a person and/or in having such a course offer at your institution, please do not hesitate to send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
