Since early humans first moved out of Africa, the world’s climate has had a continual impact on our history. Now, the climate itself is being shaped by civilisation.
This free online course from the University of Reading will take you on this fascinating journey through time. Over five weeks, we’ll explore how climate shapes the way we live, the food we eat, the water we drink and the cities we live in.
From the fundamental science of the atmosphere to the social, economic and political consequences of climate change, expert archaeologists, scientists, geographers and engineers will guide you.
