Wicked Code: Coding for Climate
A Two Week Programme: Starting the 14th of March
The Problem. Climate change can’t be understood as a standalone ‘scientific’ phenomenon that can be solved with renewable energy technologies. It’s a wicked problem that combines moral and material complexity. At the same time, we can’t address India’s climate challenges if we can’t measure them, and so we will likely need a comprehensive method of measuring and pricing carbon emissions (a carbon GST in colloquial terms).
So how do we get a grip on the problem of measuring carbon emissions at the source?
Who is it for? It’s for anyone who wants to use computational thinking and creative practices to grasp the climate crisis in the Indian context. No prior experience with coding or data analysis is required; we will cover all the required ideas and tools from scratch. If you have experience with code and/or climate, we will provide additional material to keep you engaged. As long as you’re open to learning new ideas and having fun, you’re all set.
When: The two-week course will start on the 14th of March and will be entirely online.
