The revamped Learning for Sustainability MOOC, which used to be on Coursera and is moving to FutureLearn, explores current global issues and invites learners to investigate specific local issues within their area in order to better consider how they can take action in response to these interconnected challenges. This course will appeal to those working within educational settings where they can either work with their learners on the course or bring some of the activities and issues covered in the course into their teaching context.
