Become a Climate Fighter! United Nations

Dedicated to Niloufar Bayani

Climate change is here to stay and now we have to realistically talk about adaptation and nature-based solutions to help our planet. So if you're seeing climate change impacts and climate-related disasters around you and you are not sure how you can create solutions, then this course is for you.

For almost a year we developed lecture videos and case studies for UN Environment's latest rollout of its online course on nature-based solutions for disaster and climate resilience. It is always a challenge to work with teams across the globe. And COVID didn't make it easier. But flexibility and having plan A, B, C, D, and E allowed us to cross the finish line on time.

We would like to thank the UN Environment team for letting us lend a hand in creating this course. And we would like to join in dedicating our work to our former UN Environment colleague Niloufar Bayani who, along with five environmentalists, is serving a 10-year prison sentence in a prison in Iran for her wildlife conservation work.
