PGCourse is an interactive, interdisciplinary virtual course for college and university students to explore climate justice, sustainability, advocacy, and public health. Participants from around the world will engage with and learn from each other, academics, speakers, mentors and innovators throughout this independent study. This curated 15-week curriculum will broaden perspectives on key environmental topics, illustrate the intersections vital to this work, and sharpen critical thinking, leadership, communication and professional skills. We seek to assemble a global group of students who are highly motivated and propel these next generation agents of change with passion, purpose and power.
Students will benefit from a dynamic educational experience, gaining knowledge and skill sets with widespread application and value. PGCourse will prompt solutions-focused thinking to activate voices and actualize potential. These learnings will be put into practice through a final climate action group project with real world environmental and community impact.
The application requires a completed questionnaire, an academic letter of recommendation, and an interview in the final round. 30 students will be accepted for Fall 2021 from a global pool of applicants and embark on a shared journey to reach their full leadership potential and rise to co-create a healthy, just, resilient future.
Applications are open through May 31. Students will be notified of acceptance by mid July. PGCourse runs from August 30 to December 16, 2021 with two meetings each week in the virtual classroom, plus assignments and working time.
