Kursinhalt

Understand why and how water scarcity happens and what can be done to help

What happens when water runs out, and why does it occur? How can we ensure an adequate fresh water supply for all?

These are some of the questions you will ask and answer on this course. You will examine the dual nature of water scarcity, first examining reasons for diminishing supplies, like growing human populations, climate, lifestyle, poor water management, and poor governance. You will then learn about the conflicts that arise over water, and most importantly you will learn what can be done to ensure adequate supplies for people and nature.

We tend to take water for granted. We turn on the tap, fill a glass, and we don’t give much thought to where it comes from, whether we’re running out of it, or how it’s made safe for us to drink. This course is for anyone interested in learning about water scarcity, sustainability, and conflicts that arise over water. You don’t need any past experience.
