Oxford University Summer School for Adults: “Climate Change: Science and Communication”

The Oxford University Summer School for Adults is a stimulating, accredited programme that has existed for over a hundred years.
The summer school brings together a cosmopolitan range of like-minded students for a self-contained week of specialised study overseen by some of the finest tutors in the country.

Climate Change: Science and Communication

We will start by looking at the physics and dynamical processes of the climate system, how it has varied in the past, present and how it will vary in future. It will discuss how the climate is observed, both historically and the present day. This will lead into examining how climate models work and their projections of future climate, and the uncertainties of these projections. We will finish with sessions discussing how climate change is covered in the media, the implications of recent governmental policies (world-wide) and the difficulties in communicating climate change.

The course will be taught by Dr. Adrian Champion, a Research Fellow at the University of Exeter.

Summer is the ideal time to visit the historic city of Oxford, and absorb the picturesque charm of the architecture, gardens, park, and canals.
