Climate change education is needed to address the challenges of climate change and universities play an important role in transferring knowledge The modules show how cities are both affected by and contribute to climate change and how planning for climate change is essential. The project was supported by funding from the Government of Norway. The modules were developed under the Habitat UNI, the UN-Habitat partnership with universities globally.
