Oxford Adaptation Academy - Creating Climate Adaptation Leaders
11 - 30 August 2014, Oxford, UK
Are you passionate about climate change and climate adaptation?
Do you want to develop practical skills in the field?
Are you ready to become a change maker?
Are you ready to take a lead in climate adaptation and invest in your future leaders by expanding your staff’s horizons?
Climate adaptation requires champions, leaders and agents of change. Join us in Oxford, UK this August and immerse yourself in the Adaptation Academy; an exciting, rigorous and challenging three-week learning programme to:
· Enhance your technical understanding of climate adaptation
· Introduce practical tools and approaches that are directly applicable to your everyday work
· Develop leadership and change management skills within your particular context.
The Adaptation Academy integrates four central learning themes:
1. Participants' role as change makers
2. Causal chains of climate science
3. Adaptation as a process, and
4. Project/Programme development.
From the halls of an Oxford college, explore your role, make new and binding friendships with future leaders, raise the bar on your own thinking and potential by rubbing shoulders with an internationally renowned adaptation community. Learn first-hand from expert practitioners and be inspired by leading intellectuals pioneering revolutionary interventions.
Emerge transformed and be prepared to find adaptation solutions for some of the most profound challenges ever to face the world and build a strong foundation for integrating climate adaptation into your work. Join world-renowned alumni and the leading global network on climate adaptation.
Now in its fifth year, the Adaptation Academy has a proven and unique professional development model that increases participants’ capacity for successfully "doing" adaptation instead of continuing to search for answers to the question: "what is adaptation?”
In 2013, participants rated the course with an overall average score of 4.8 out of 5 based on extensive, anonymous feedback. Many are still in touch, practising what they learnt, supporting each other and building a robust global community of adaptation best practice.
