The Earth Course is a space to learn, share, discuss, debate, and ultimately come to your own conclusions about the environment. It is designed for residents of Hackney and Tower Hamlets who know a little but not a lot about the environment, and would like to explore the issues more.
The Earth Course consists of six evening sessions at weekly intervals with the following themes.
Week 1: Introduction
Week 2: The Natural World
Week 3: Climate Change
Week 4: Green Economy
Week 5: People Power
Week 6: What can we do?
Between each session there will be thought-provoking readings on the theme of the next session, as well as recommendations for further readings on the issues covered. The sessions themselves will be participative, with an emphasis on co-learning rather than traditional ‘teaching’.
The sessions will run on Wednesdays 11, 18 and 25 January, and 1, 8 and 15 of February.
