The Indian consulate has collaborated with the University of Edinburgh to develop a course in the Hindi language, a first for the University. Jointly launched by the University and the Indian government, the course has been curated with the help of skilled translators.
Designed and delivered by champion climate-change experts, including Professor Dave Reay, executive director of the Edinburgh Climate Change Institute (ECCI), Univ. of Edinburgh, Climate Solutions: India (Hindi), examines the science, influence, and findings of climate change in the country.
It is a five-week course that focuses on the country’s different climate zones, and how changes in these regions could impact the country’s health, agriculture, and economy, as per the university’s website.
“I am delighted to see this course being launched in Hindi – congratulations to all involved. We are grateful to the Consulate General of India in Edinburgh for their kind support. This is a fantastic example of the collaboration between the Government of India and the University of Edinburgh in this all-important area of climate change,” said professor Pankaj, international dean for South Asia at the Univ. of Edinburgh.
Prof. Reay said, “It has been a real pleasure working in partnership with the India Consulate – with whom we have an excellent link - to develop this new open access climate change course. Huge thanks to the online course development team here at Edinburgh, and the wonderful translation work led by our colleagues in the India Consulate, in bringing this important new course to life.”
