START is partnering with the University of Dar es Salaam on a university-wide program to integrate teaching and learning on climate change into the classroom experience, and to promote communication on critical climate change issues between the university and the public. The work, carried out through the University of Dar es Salaam’s Center for Climate Change Research, Education and Outreach in collaboration with START, involves developing new curricula to enhance learning about climate change, providing training that develops instructional approaches for teaching on climate change issues, promoting inter-disciplinary research on climate change, and facilitating opportunities for discourse between university-based researchers, civil society organizations, the private sector, governmental institutions and policy makers around issues of climate change. This work is supported by the Open Society Institute. Activities will begin in late 2012.
