Oxford Smith School low-carbon summer school programme Overview

Summer Sustainability, Climate & ENvironmental Education

Oxford Smith School is proud to launch its low-carbon summer school programme!

The course aims to guide and encourage a youth and early career audience from the Global South to engage with sustainability policy. After exploring a range of sustainability topics, you will be guided to develop a policy recommendation for world leaders, to be published at the end of the course. In a live webinar format, the low-carbon summer school programme provides an opportunity for participants to network in the sustainability space with peers from other Global South nations, student facilitators on current Oxford MSc courses, and learn from Oxford faculty and other experts in this field.
