Examining the current state and future projections of climate change and its effects on human, ecosystem, and planetary health, and developing solutions for these challenges.
About the class
D-Lab: Climate Change and Planetary Health is project-based, student-focused, experiential, and transdisciplinary. Emphasizing nature- and community-based solutions, both local and global, the class focuses on environmental and climate justice.
Participation and teamwork are fundamental, as are experiential activities such as field trips to zero-carbon buildings and to sites undergoing rapid transformation.
Working individually or in teams, students develop a term project on a climate change or planetary health solution of their choice, applying knowledge and skills to craft innovative, sustainable real-world solutions. Graduate students complete additional assignments.
