The CGGE Global Climate Change module explores how climates have changed in the past and how climates are currently being influenced by human activities. The conceptual framework introduces some of the theories and ideas used by geographers to analyze world climates, emphasizing concepts such as atmospheric pollution, greenhouse effect, and energy budgets. Each case study explores a geographic question about climate change in the context of a particular region or country. The module's collaborative projects offer opportunities for students to discuss the case studies and engage in geographic learning with students in different countries.

The CGGE Global Climate Change module's collaborative projects are designed to connect geography classes in different countries for online learning and are adaptable to a wide range of learning contexts.

If you wish to find a collaborator in a different region or country, you will first need to register your collaboration (no charge) with the AAG.
