Title of the training
Climate Change, Adaptation, Mitigation and Climate Justice
1 day (8 hours)
Purpose and scope
The aim of Climate Change, Adaptation, Mitigation and Climate Justice training is to provide individuals with knowledge and awareness on climate change, the effects of climate change, adaptation to climate change, climate change mitigation and climate justice, and to develop attitudes and skills to determine strategies and actions at individual and institutional levels, to adapt to climate change, to mitigate climate change, to minimize and ultimately eliminate climate injustices.
Although Climate Change, Adaptation, Mitigation and Climate Justice Education is primarily designed for high school students and undergraduate students, it is recommended to be taken as a beginner level training on global climate change and sustainability for all young people and adults. It is designed as a beginner’s level training for each individual who aspires to be part of the solution and an active member of the local, national and global communities that taking actions for the solution in the areas of climate change, global warming and sustainability.
Climate Change, Adaptation, Mitigation and Climate Justice training is given by trainers who are experienced in training and capacity building on climate change, climate change effects, climate change adaptation, climate change mitigation and climate justice, have information about national and global developments, policies and trends in these subjects, have done projects or research in these areas.

Delivery and method
This training is applied face-to-face. However, if conditions arise that prevent face-to-face training, the training may be delivered remotely by using the Me-Learning© online learning platform and the Actio© meeting management tool.
Trainer guides learners through interaction, brainstorming, discussion, case studies, group studies and practices in a way that facilitates learning and improves application skills, as well as the presentation of basic information about climate change, climate change adaptation, climate change mitigation and climate justice. In particular, group studies and practices are carried out to develop skills in determining adaptation and mitigation strategies and actions, and creating strategies and actions to minimize climate injustices.
Learning tools and materials
In this training, in addition to presentation, worksheets, exercise and practice templates and similar documents are used as teaching materials for activities such as brainstorming, discussion, case study and group work on climate change, climate change adaptation, climate change mitigation and climate justice.
If the training is carried out online, individual registration and entry for the training, management of participation and similar administrative arrangements can be carried out with the Actio© Event Management System in order to ensure effective management of the training event as well as to reduce the use of all kinds of paper and waste. In distance education, Me-Learning© learning management system may be used.
In accordance with our waste reduction policy, printed materials are not distributed in this training unless it is educationally necessary.
Assessment and evaluation
A question sheet is administered, online or in print, to the participants before and after the training to determine the level of awareness and knowledge on Climate Change, Adaptation, Mitigation and Climate Justice. In addition, at the end of the training, the Training Evaluation Questionnaire is applied.
All participants who complete the training receive a certificate of participation showing that they have completed the Climate Change, Adaptation, Mitigation and Climate Justice Training, with duration of the training clearly stated.
Climate, climate change, climate change adaptation, climate change mitigation strategies, climate justice, climate change and disadvantaged, climate change and gender equality
