Greetings from Climate University Annual Meeting in Tampere 2.-3.11.

Society needs new competences to tackle the challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss and the sustainability crisisRepresentatives from 27 Higher Education Institutions met in Tampere

In the beginning of November, it was time to get together with the Climate University community for an annual meeting. In the meeting the network news were discussed, and future plans workshopped. The meeting was especially aimed at Climate University coordinators and course teachers, but everyone interested to get to know more and to be involved was warmly welcomed. The event was organized prior to the Unifi and Arene sustainability and responsibility seminar in Tampere.

The aim of the Climate University network is to foster climate and sustainability teaching and learning in higher education as well as in society. Climate University provides free, high-quality online courses for universities and everyone who wants to make the sustainability transition in the society real. Currently, there are 27 Finnish higher education institutions as partners in the network. Climate University has developed materials to altogether ten courses, some of them in Finnish and English languages. In addition to these, the first course is now available also in Swedish (Klimat.nu). 

New network members and future plans

In the meeting we celebrated the two new members of the network, Högskolan på Åland and Åbo Akademi. Iryna Herzon from the University of Helsinki, representing Biodiversity education network and the new Biodiversity.now course, discussed the importance of the biodiversity to life and introduced the new course. Natalia Korhonen from Finnish Meteorological Institute presented a new course topic: Living with changing climate and Anna Lintunen from the University of Helsinki introduced another new course theme Forests and climate change, both courses in preparation by several collaborators.

Laura Riuttanen from the University of Helsinki coordinates the entire network.  Laura presented the new initiatives and collaboration possibilities.  

The workshops focused on developing current courses and sharing experiences from the past implementations of Climate University courses. In addition, initiatives made on new Climate University courses were discussed. New ideas, inspiring discussions and future plans were designed. The discussions will continue and as an example, network wide framework about vision, goals and action plan will be sent to the network coordinators by the end of the year. 

Sanomisen Paikka at Tampere-talo

In the evening, an open Sanomisen paikka -panel discussion was held at Tampere-talo in Finnish. Panelists discussed biodiversity, which is being depleted at an alarming rate due to the unsustainable use of natural resources, climate change, habitat fragmentation, and other human activities. What does this mean for the future? What can each of us do? This event was named as ‘Katoava Luontomme’. In the end, Idän Proffa, which is the alter ego of post-doctoral researcher Samuli Junttila from University of Eastern Finland, performed a song, which pulled together the entire discussion. Junttila strives to convey researched information and increase awareness of the deteriorating state of the environment. Understanding the effects of climate change and biodiversity loss requires, in addition to knowledge, empathy and feelings, which can be conveyed through music. Idän Proffa’s story started with the need to communicate his doctoral research and a music video, which was later also awarded with Science Magazine’s Dance your PhD award, however the project has become an important personal tool for him to deal with the emotions caused by climate change.

Feelings and atmosphere during the meeting

Although online education and tools provide many resource efficient and climate friendly opportunities for collaboration, it was very much appreciated to meed in person and have the opportunity to share views and discuss together. Thank you to Atmosphere and Climate Competence Center for the servings and very nice dinner at Telakka. 

Next meeting

Next Climate University network meeting will be held in November 2023 attached to Unifi & Arene sustainability seminar in Helsinki. Before that, we hope to meet at Sustainability science days in May, and at coming courses!

Välkommen nya medlemmar

Vi har glädjen att välkomna två nya medlemmar till en del av Climate University-nätverket: Åbo Akademi och Högskolan på Åland! Det är fint att få mera svenskspråkiga medlemmar till nätverket! Vi har också glädjen att öppna den första kursen på svenska: Klimat nu. Kursen har tidigare erbjudits på finska och engelska.

Klimat.nu är en onlinekurs som ger studeranden en mångsidig uppfattning om klimatförändringen; vad det egentligen är frågan om, vilka de fysikaliska mekanismerna är som orsakar klimatuppvärmningen, vilka som är orsakerna till växthusgasutsläppen, hur framtiden ser ut och vilka medlen är för begränsning och anpassning av klimatförändringen. Kursen består av sju moduler med flervalsuppgifter samt övriga uppgifter som fördjupar studerandens förståelse om ämnet i fråga. Studeranden har möjlighet via uppgifterna att också reflektera sin egen roll i klimatförändringen. Kursmaterialet kan studeras självständigt, men om studiepoäng vill anhållas skall kursen studeras via något av universiteten som erbjuder den!

Sanomisen paikka: Katoava luontomme

Aika: keskiviikkona 2.11. klo 17:30-18:30
Paikka: Tampere-talon Aulaklubi
Luonnon monimuotoisuus köyhtyy hälyttävällä nopeudella luonnonvarojen kestämättömän käytön, ilmastonmuutoksen, elinympäristöjen pirstoutumisen, vieraslajien leviämisen ja ihmisen muun toiminnan vuoksi. Mitä tämä tarkoittaa tulevaisuudelle? Mitä jokainen meistä voi tehdä? Mikä on koulutuksen rooli luontokadon pysäyttämisessä?
Keskustelun tulee avaamaan Emma Hakanen Biodiversiteettikoulutusverkostosta teemalla “Luonnon monimuotoisuus – elämän ehto. Koulutusyhteistyö biodiversiteettiosaamisen vahvistamisessa”.
Tämän jälkeen alkavassa paneelikeskustelussa syvennytään aiheeseen ja mukaan keskusteluun liittyvät ilmastonmuutokseen sopeutumisen ja luontopääoman erityisasiantuntija Kaisa Mustajärvi Tampereen kaupungilta, Tampereen luonnontieteellisen museon intendentti Tomi Kumpulainen Tampereen kaupungilta, Villivyöhyke ry:n puheenjohtaja Jere Nieminen ja Tampereen ammattikorkeakoulusta metsäekologian lehtori Petri Keto-Tokoi.
Asiaan paneudutaan myös musiikin keinoin räppäämällä, kun Idän Proffa https://idanproffa.com/ saapuu lavalle. Idän Proffa on tutkijatohtori Samuli Junttilan alter ego, jonka kautta hän pyrkii välittämään tutkittua tietoa ja lisäämään tietoisuutta ympäristön heikentyvästä tilasta. Ilmastonmuutoksen ja luontokadon vaikutuksien ymmärtäminen vaatii tiedon lisäksi empatiaa ja tunteita, joita voidaan musiikin kautta välittää. Idän Proffan tarina lähti liikkeelle tarpeesta viestiä väitöstutkimuksesta sekä musiikkivideosta, joka myöhemmin palkittiin myös Science-lehden Dance your PhD-palkinnolla, mutta projektista on muodostunut hänelle tärkeä henkilökohtainen työkalu ilmastonmuutoksen aiheuttamien tunteiden käsittelyyn.
Tilaisuuden juontaa tutkijatohtori Nina Nygren Tampereen yliopistosta. Hän on käsitellyt tutkimuksissaan luonnonsuojelu- ja eläinpolitiikkaan liittyviä aiheita, kuten liito-oravia, kaupunkirottia sekä ekologista kompensaatiota. Hän on kiinnostunut myös maankäytön suunnittelusta ja siitä syntyvien konfliktien ratkaisemisesta.
Kaikille avoin keskustelutilaisuus alkaa Tampere-talon pääaulassa 2.11. klo 17.30.
Jos et pääse seuraamaan keskustelua paikan päälle, voit seurata sitä myös striimattuna: https://vimeo.com/event/2477494/111def678d
Tapahtuma on osa Climate University https://climateuniversity.fi/
ja Biodiversiteettikoulutusverkoston https://www.biodiversityeducation.fi/ toimintaa. Tapahtuma järjestetään yhteistyössä Tampere-talon kanssa.

New courses: Biodiversity.now and Una Europa Micro-Credential in Sustainability

Last Friday October 7th we launched Una Europa Micro-Credential in Sustainability, in collaboration with Una Europa European Universities alliance, Climate University and Biodiversity education Network Finland.

Una Europa Micro-Credential in Sustainability is a 10-cr module on sustainability, aimed for continuous learners. However, also higher education students can take it as part of their degree. Credits are awarded by the University of Helsinki, on behalf of the Una Europa alliance.

The 10-cr micro-credential consists of five Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs): Introduction to sustainability, 3 cr (built on Climate University course Sustainable.now), Climate.now, 2 cr (built on CU course), Biodiversity.now, 2 cr (the new Climate University course!), Political Economy of Sustainability, 2 cr (provided by Jagellonian University, Poland) and Sustainability and the Arts, 1 cr (provided by the University of Bologna, Italy).

The Biodiversity.now course is developed in collaboration between the Biodiversity education network, Climate University and Una Europa. The production of the course was funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture, Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra Una Europa and Nordplus. The 2 ECTS Biodiversity.now course offers an easy way for students to learn more about the ongoing biodiversity crisis and solutions for it. The intention of the course is to appeal for a wide variety of learners, regardless of their field of study, and therefore the course does not require previous knowledge on biodiversity or biology. The course consists of six modules: Basic knowledge, Biodiversity crisis, Threats and consequences, Biodiversity conservation, Biodiversity here, now and in the future and Reflection. 

The learning goals of the course are for the students to be able to recognize reasons for the ongoing biodiversity crisis and its consequences for the human society and for their personal life, to explore their own connection to nature and the values they assign to it, to recognize a variety of approaches and tools for protecting of biodiversity, increasing of biodiversity and promoting the sustainable use of biodiversity. The last learning goal ensures that students are able to apply the issues to their own field of studies or work and learn how to be part of the solution. 

The overreaching aim is to make students familiar with the biodiversity crisis, its drivers and consequences, and recognize their own leverage points when it comes to halting the biodiversity crisis.

Help, Climate Change! – exhibition by Climate.now students open for public at Helsinki Observatory

Helsinki Observatory

The new temporary mini-exhibition at Helsinki Observatory is all about the changing climate of our home planet. The exhibition provides an approachable introduction to climate history and the carbon cycle, and lets you try your hand at balancing carbon sinks with emissions. The exhibition has been created in cooperation with students of the University of Helsinki Climate.now course in Autumn 2021. During the course, the students designed 20 exhibition items in groups as project work. Some of the items were selected in collaboration with the Observatory staff to be implemented in the historical obseratory premises.

Even though the exhibition is both informative and entertaining, it does not stop there. Contrasting with the historical milieu of the old observatory, it calls you to imagine your own future climate utopias and save the things you value most. Surrounded both by nature and some of the finest achievements of humankind, the environment of the exhibition reminds you of all the things in this world that are worth fighting for.

Exhibition is open for public from 27.5.2022 onwards, Thu at 12 – 20, Fri-Sat at 12 – 16. Address: Kopernikuksentie 1, Helsinki. Entrance fee: 8/6/4 EUR, for free with the Museum card. www.observatorio.fi

Ilmastowebinaari ja tutustumiskurssi lukiolaisille

Viime vuonna ensimmäistä kertaa järjestetty Ilmasto.nyt -tutustumiskurssi on saapumassa jälleen! Kurssi on tiivistetty versio jo monena vuonna järjestetystä Ilmasto.nyt (Climate.now) -kurssista. Kurssi alkaa kaikille avoimella Nuorten Ilmastowebinaarilla, jossa tällä kertaa asiantuntijat käsittelevästi arktisia olosuhteita ja ilmastonmuutoksen vaikutusta pohjoisessa. Niin opiskelijat kuin opettajatkin ovat tervetulleita sekä kuuntelemaan maksutonta webinaaria että osallistumaan kurssille.

 

Ilmasto.nyt tutustumiskurssi (2 op, kurssikoodi FYS4027 /Helsingin yliopisto)

Ilmasto.nyt -tutustumiskurssi järjestetään 3.5.–14.6.2022 Digicampus-kurssialustalla. Kurssi toimii pohjustuksena ilmastonmuutoksen tärkeille teemoille. Kurssin materiaali on itseopiskeltavaa, ja soveltuu sekä lukiolaisille että kandidaatin tutkintoaan suorittaville opiskelijoille. Kurssilla järjestetään tiistaisin klo 16–17 yhteinen Zoom-sessio, joissa uppoudutaan tarkemmin kurssin teemoihin ja joissa opiskelijoilla on mahdollisuus esittää kysymyksiä.

Kurssin kolme keskeistä teemaa ovat

  • ilmastonmuutoksen luonnontieteelliset perusteet
    (esimerkiksi kasvihuoneilmiö, hiilenkierto, ilmastomallit)
  • ilmastonmuutoksen hillintä
    (esimerkiksi hiilineutraali energia ja uusiutuvan energian tuotanto, hiilijalanjälki, ilmastopolitiikka)
  • ilmastonmuutoksen vaikutukset ja niihin sopeutuminen
    (esimerkiksi ekosysteemipalvelut, palauteilmiöt, ilmastonmuutokseen sopeutuminen)
