After having successfully completed the course, the students are able to critically deal with the causes and outcomes of  social-ecological crisis, appropriate  relevant conceptual frameworks  and identify alternative options.

The course deals with the ever growing problem of climate change by placing it in the context of broader socio-ecological crisis. Drawing on insights generated by the literature on Social Ecology, political ecology, ecological economics and environmental justice, the course seeks to understand the main drivers and mechanisms of socio-ecological crisis as well the emergence of new social movements in response to that. The focus will be on the motifs, repertoires and modes of action as displayed by the emergent global movement of Fridays for future.
