We’re facing a major problem. This course illustrates our situation’s gravity but energises and empowers you, rather than leaving you feeling anxious and hopeless. If we’re going to face this crisis together, we all need to understand it. What’s more, we all need to feel enabled to weave our understanding into everyday conversations, actions and future plans.

Lesson 2: Nature, soil and the future of food (60 mins)

- Are we experiencing the sixth mass extinction? 
 - Could soil be our saviour? 
 - What does this have to do with our diets, and what can we do about it?

Lesson 3: Population, pollution and finding a balance (65 mins)

- Why it's so hard to think globally
 - Where our waste goes
- Air and plastic pollution
- The complexities of our growing population
 - Why protecting nature is the key to preventing future pandemics

Lesson 4: How do we fix this? Making the impossible possible (75 mins)

I signed up for the "Understanding The climate Crisis" course and absolutely love it! Very educational, whilst staying approachable, completely digestible and above all insightful to a point where you will be left feeling clear on what actions to take and why. Matthew is not only very knowledgeable, he really has a natural way to teach whislt keeping his audience engaged. 
I truly recommend AimHi course, they are incredibly well designed for all age and all background!

I've just finished the AimHi 4 part course, "How to Talk to About the Climate Crisis to Anyone" and am so glad I did it. This was an interesting course, very informative and put me right on some misconceptions I had. I was worried it might be too depressing, maybe a bit preachy, too "dumbed down," or the opposite - too difficult, but found no problem with any of that. The presenter was a lovely guy and the whole feel of the thing was hopeful, kind and friendly.
