Just weeks before the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26, an announcement from the University of Edinburgh was made saying it will be starting the fifth run of its popular carbon capture and storage (CCS) online course.
The course has a duration of 5 weeks and is set to run alongside the COP26 conference, which in turn will take place between October 31st and November 12th, 2021, in Glasgow, Scotland.
The University of Edinburgh’s online course on CCS has gained popularity over the years and is widely seen as the first course of its kind. Since its launch, the course has attracted over 18,000 participants from all around the world during its first four runs, allowing people of all walks of life to learn about the science behind carbon capture technology.
Geologists like David Pickering and other scientists in the field have praised the course and recommend it to anyone, even people with no scientific background, to take it as a gateway into understanding CCS and its role in the ongoing energy transition.
Relevant: What Is Carbon Capture Technology?
The course is free and requires only between 2 and 3 hours every week, making it very accessible. But also the quality of the knowledge provided throughout the five-week course is of the highest quality, being delivered by experts in their respective fields.
The course is scheduled to begin on October 25th and will provide all those interested in CCS technology with an in-depth understanding of the road to decarbonization. And perhaps more importantly, it can help people make more informed decisions in regards to climate solutions that are available to them on an individual level, thus accelerating the decarbonization of the world.
