Welcome on board! We are excited to share with you the (e)mission (im)possible course!

The aim of the course is to integrate key competences on climate action among current and future professionals in the field of development cooperation and humanitarian aid.

The course is completely free of charge and includes approximately 25 hours of total work, divided into short video lectures, supplementary readings and tests to assess the knowledge acquired on the course material. All lectures and material can be accessed at any time during the course duration.

The online training course addresses 4 main clusters:

  • A. The human dimension of climate change: liabilities, climate justice and human rights
  • B. Climate change basics: climate science and international governance
  • C. Organisations’ actions to curb emissions and to improve their climate action
  • D. Engaging other actors in change: donors, partners, local communities and policy makers.

About the project

The course is one of the outcomes of the (e)mission (im)possible project, co-funded by the European Union, which aims to build pathways towards the decarbonisation of the cooperation and humanitarian aid sector by providing key competences to professionals, volunteers and students in the sector.

The project is the result of cooperation between six organisations in Italy (A Sud, Un Ponte Per, Fondazione Ecosistemi), Spain (Iroko, Bosque y Comunidad, Universidad de Cadiz) and Portugal (AIDGLOBAL). Fundamental to this edition of the course is the contribution of the Department of Communication and Social Research of UniversitĂ  La Sapienza in Rome, a project associate partner.
