In Fall 2014, MIT launched the MIT Climate Change Conversation.  Maria T. Zuber, MIT’s vice president for research, has charged the MIT community to “explore pathways to effective climate change mitigation, including how the MIT community — through education, research and campus engagement — can constructively move the global and national agendas forward.”
MIT OpenCourseWare is a free and open-licensed web publication of MIT teaching materials, spanning the entire curriculum with over 2,200 courses. Through OCW, educators improve courses and curricula, making their schools more effective; students find additional resources to help them succeed; and independent learners enrich their lives and use the content to tackle some of our world’s most difficult challenges. In support of the Climate Conversation, they have created this list of Climate Change Courses on OCW.
OCW has published many courses on climate change. To foster this conversation, here are some highlights from our publication, organized around four themes: science foundations, new technology and engineering solutions, the continuum of economics-business-policy-politics, and perspectives from the humanities.
Science Foundations

Technology and Engineering Solutions

Economics, Business, Planning, & Politics

Humanities Perspectives
