Module overview

The climate crisis is one of the most urgent issues facing humanity. Climate change is having an increasing impact on individual lives, and on social and political relations and institutions. This module examines the moral and political philosophical issues raised by climate change. It considers, amongst other questions, what obligations individual citizens have to address the climate crisis; what present generations owe to future generations; and what a just distribution of the costs of tackling the climate crisis might look like.
