AbstractWorking with real-​world case studies, the Climate Innovation programme empowers climate leaders with the necessary skills and knowledge to support and lead the transition towards net zero emissions.
ObjectiveMitigation of and adaptation to climate change requires fast and deeply transformative changes of our socio-​economic-environmental systems towards net zero emissions.
The goal of the Climate Innovation programme is to equip future climate leaders with the adequate skills and knowledge to 1) lead this transition, 2) navigate uncertainty and complexity, and 3) develop impactful solutions in interdisciplinary teams.
A collective intelligence will be created around three pillars of this programme, namely system knowledge, transformational learning experience, and network activation, with an emphasis on dialogue and exchange.
Prerequisites / NoticeMaster's degree acknowledged by ETH or equivalent educational qualifications, preferably in science or humanities, with a background in natural sciences, engineering, architecture or business.
The Climate Innovation programme is aimed at professionals (3 years +) from business, industry, the public sector and non-governmental organisations who deal with complex problems related to climate change.
