    Description This seminar gives an overview of the actual scientific knowledge on climate change. Both perspectives from natural and social sciences are presented in order to identify and understand the mis/match between the empirical evidences and the political, social and economic practices in terms of CO2 emissions, climate change mitigation and adaptation. The topic gives also the opportunity to reflect on the relationships between knowledge production, perceptions and practices.

    Learning outcomes: On successful completion of the module, you will be able to:
    - Be familiar with the terms of the debates and its complexity
    - Clarify the importance of perspectives, language and understandings of the object “climate”
    - Improve scientific skills: confident and autonomous, critical and self reflexive
    - Raise awareness about how you think on the issue of climate change
    - Relate theoretical and empirical research with the example of climate change
