This is an online self-paced course, meaning that you will review the learning material and complete the assessments at your own pace. In addition to the intuitive navigation structure of the virtual environment, the course has a set of readings, audiovisual resources and hyperlinks to other materials and electronic sites, in order to facilitate the appropriation of learning and make the evaluation process more effective.
The dynamics of the course will be based on the individual content review, which will allow the participant to learn about the relationship between civil society and governments on climate change agendas. Each module has an evaluation with a percentage of incidence on the total points that the participant must achieve to pass the course.
