Everyone has heard the terms climate change, global warming and greenhouse gases but few people truly understand the science behind climate change, let alone the implications and options we face as we plan for the future. Advancing public awareness and understanding of climate change is a key component of what PICS does. Drawing on our vast knowledge base, we engage in outreach activities and create educational tools to inform audiences at all levels.
This comprehensive series of animated, online “short courses” provides a comprehensive but non-technical understanding of climate change – from the basic science to impacts, adaptation and mitigation.
These short, easily digestible mini-lessons explain the basics of climate science.
In these multimedia clips of two minutes or less, common climate myths are exposed and refuted.
PICS offers ongoing education and information via presentations and speakers at each of the four universities. Most of our seminars and public lectures are available via live webcasts, which are subsequently archived. View the PICS events archive.
