About the Course

This course is a part of The University of Gothenburg Summer School for Sustainability:

The course sets out to explore critically the intersection between social inequalities and climate change. By discussing this overall topic in different empirical and thematic contexts (e.g. urbanization, infrastructure development, water management, conservation efforts, agricultural practices, migration etc.), the course will provide the students with the theoretical concepts and the analytical tools for understanding and addressing issues of vulnerability to climate change, marginalization, and climate justice. Each thematic lecture of the course will be organized in the following 3-steps model: 1) A problem and its context; 2) Theoretical concepts and analytical tools; 3) Application of concepts and tools to the problem at hand. Lectures will be interactive in nature to allow the students to share their experiences and to apply the theoretical tools and approaches provided during the course. The course addresses some of the key issues of Agenda 2030 and relates explicitly to several of the SDGs (especially SDG 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 ) as it places emphasis on the challenges of combatting climate change, its causes and effects, which are deeply unequal in nature.
