with the Environmental Change Institute
Created by communication and education experts with the Environmental Change Institute (ECI) in the School of Geography and Environment at the University of Oxford, the week run with the ECI is focused on helping students understand how science is done, how scientists interact with policy makers, and how non-experts can judge and make use of scientific information.

This course is based at the ECI, with local trips around Oxford to visit projects and businesses focussed on solutions to climate change and other challenges. Students talk to scientists in the ECI about their work and how it is applied. We visit the university field station just outside the city to take part in some of the research projects there. We meet business entrepreneurs who are innovating new solutions to global issues. And we work with scientific journalists to learn how to ask the right questions and cut through the jargon to communicate scientific information to a non-scientific audience. In the evenings we explore some of the delights that Oxford has to offer. This course is in its 4th year and previous students have loved it.
