CAS in Climate Innovation | ETHZ

Participants will work collaboratively on real-​world case studies that are relevant to their work and relevant to stakeholders. They will experience complexity and learn how to cope with it, participate in peer learning, and utilise a network consisting of public/private sectors to prototype impactful solutions.


The goal of the CAS programme is to equip future climate leaders with the adequate skills and knowledge to navigate uncertainty and complexity, and to prepare the participants to develop impactful solutions in interdisciplinary teams. A collective intelligence will be created around three pillars of this programme, namely 1) system knowledge, 2) transformational learning experience, and 3) network activation, with an emphasis on dialogue and exchange.
