Our founding science partner, The University of Queensland has opened a free on-line course (1-2 year University level) on Tropical Coastal Ecosystems and Global Change as part of the edX partnership with Harvard and MIT.
This exciting course will introduce the major tropical coastal ecosystems (principally coral reefs, mangroves, sea grass meadows) and will explore the problems and solutions that these critical systems face. It will directly link to the Catlin Seaview Survey project – with many graduates being eligible for a citizen science program which is currently in development.
The lecturers include the Chief Scientist of the Catlin Seaview Survey and Director of the Global Change Institute Professor Ove Hoegh-Guldberg along with Professors Hugh Possingham, Sophie Dove, Catherine Lovelock, and Stuart Phinn, with contributions from Drs Dorothea Bender, Ruth Reef, and Chris Roelfsema.
The course starts on April 28. To find out more and register, click here.
