Frequently Asked Questions

What is included in the price of the course?

The price of the course includes access to more than 60 on-demand videos, an on-line version of the course with additional supporting content, unlimited future access to the videos and other course materials, and 6 months of free Premium Access to the Climate Web.

What if I want to dig deeper into a topic in the course?

You're right, videos can only scratch the surface of the complexity of many of the topics covered. That's why you will receive 6 months of free Premium Access to the Climate Web (normally $49.99/month for business users), a collective intelligence for understanding and tackling climate change. Premium Access allows you to dig as deeply as you want into virtually any of the topics covered in the course, as well as many others. 

How can the course remain current across so many topics?  

One reason the Climatographers started building the Climate Web soon after authoring the first business climate risk textbook for the London School of Economics was our realization that the topic would quickly outpace our ability to update a conventional textbook.  In terms of this course, we'll update the videos on a regular basis, but the Climate Web-version of the course that you also have access to will be updated with new materials far more frequently!
