All students of the University of Barcelona will be offered a mandatory climate crisis module

Barcelona University is taking action on climate literacy. An often disregarded topic in the fight against the climate crisis The Guardian reports: "All students at the University of Barcelona will have to take a mandatory course on the climate crisis after the establishment agreed to meet the demands of activists conducting a sit-in occupation. In a move thought to be a world first, all 14,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students will have to take the course from the 2024 academic year. It will also devise a training programme on climate issues for its 6,000 academic staff. The announcement came after a seven-day occupation by a group from the anti-fossil fuel organisation End Fossil Barcelona. “To recognise that we all have to study this marks a change in the paradigm of university education,” said Federico Demaria, an economics professor at the university and one of 200 who backed the students’ demands. “It’s not just another course on sustainable development,” said Lucía Muñoz Sueiro, an End Fossil activist and PhD student at the university. “It combines the social and ecological aspects of the crisis, which are interrelated.”" A great move that will hopefully inspire other universities around the world. 🙌💚

            Like in every other university on the planet they will also be served coffee by the tonne, delivered through a supply chain that routinely diverts all roasting income and the billions of dollars commanded by the finished product, away from farmers in the developing world, farmers desperately in need of income for climate change mitigation.

                @Johannes_Luiga not whilst they believe and accept what suppliers tell them. Turkeys don’t vote for Christmas and coffee suppliers will never vote to stop doing what makes them money - despite what happens to the planet.
