Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE) are launching a new free short course about Plants and Climate Change.

This course is for anyone who wants to know more about climate change, how it relates to plants and what they can do about it. It has been designed for everyone from young adults upwards. The course consists of four sections focusing on the climate, the relationships between plants, climate and climate change, and the many ways in which we can all help reduce climate change and its effects.

The course builds on the momentum gained around climate action last year and before the COVID-19 pandemic. It aims to raise awareness and knowledge of the issue and impacts of the climate emergency, and to draw attention to how plants are affected and the roles they play in regulating climate. It encourages people to consider nature-based solutions and conservation and aims to inspire people to take some form of action themselves.

The course will be available to access from 23rd September 2020.
