Course Description : This course has been labelled as a “PSIA pedagogically innovative course”(see below pedagogical format for further information). The Paris Climate Agreement was a historic moment in international cooperation on the environment. Over 190 countries and the European Union came together and set a common binding objective of limiting global warming to 2 degrees above preindustrial temperatures by 2100. In doing so, the heads of state and negotiators of the COP21 sent the signal to the international community that the world economy must now gradually move away from fossil fuels, the primary cause of humanity's greenhouse gas emissions. This event was momentous and unprecedented. However, the COP21 in itself does not solve the problem of climate change. While the transition to a sustainable world is underway, it must undoubtedly accelerate and widen its scope of stakeholders that are genuinely involved. Countries, but also local governments, companies of all sizes and citizens have a role and a responsibility to enhance their commitment to ﬁghting climate change. The implementation of the Paris agreement requires fundamental changes in relations between countries, in how the world economy functions, in how local governments and territories adapt to climate change's effects, and in how citizens consume products and live their lives. This course will take a theoretical and practical approach to the implementation of the Paris 1413
