Training: Becoming Climate Resilient

Sniffer has recently launched a new short course, Becoming Climate Resilient, which focuses on climate change adaptation and resilience.

The new 5-hour course, endorsed by the Edinburgh Climate Change Institute (ECCI), explores climate adaptation, climate risk, and opportunities to build resilience and a fairer, flourishing future.

Dr Kate Donovan, Co-Director of the Edinburgh Climate Change Institute highlights the importance of understanding climate change adaptation:

Adaptation is critical for a thriving society and this course is fundamental in supporting a vital understanding of climate impacts, adaptation options and pathways to implementation

Ruth Wolstenholme, Managing Director of Sniffer said:

Our new training offers essential support for practitioners to understand climate risks– both now and in the future – and how to move towards a more climate resilient future

Training is delivered online and will consist of presentations, interactive workshops, and group discussion. The course focuses around five learning outcomes:

  • Understand responses to climate change, and what is meant by adaptation and mitigation
  • Explore climate trends and projections for Scotland and identify physical climate risks
  • Understand drivers for adaptation action
  • Identify opportunities for co-benefits of climate adaptation
  • Explore case studies of resilience and adaptation in action

Training is aimed at those with some understanding of climate change, however no specific knowledge of climate resilience and adaptation is required. The next Becoming Climate Resilient course dates are:

Thursday 20th April, 10.00-16.00

Tuesday 13th June, 10.00-16.00
