Most university teaching about climate change comes from the earth and physical sciences that often omits the critical psycho-socio-political and economic dimensions. Other teaching comes from the humanities and social sciences that often omits coverage of the physical science. Based on four years of experience with teaching and organizing and being a UC activist, Aron has learned that students need a wide-spectrum understanding so that they know what to do as advocates in their school and state for leaving fossil fuels in the ground, and also how to direct their careers towards a just energy and societal transition. In this workshop, he will lay out the wide-spectrum approach of his book, slides and lecture videos, and, then, with the audience, brainstorm how this can be used as the backbone for classes by some physical scientists, social scientists (such as psychologists and sociologists) and humanists such as philosophers and historians - who then add their subject-specific material.
