Oi, tudo bem? The UN CC:Learn e-Course Soon to be Available in Portuguese!
06 April 2016, Geneva, Switzerland - The UN CC:Learn Secretariat is happy to announce a new partnership with UNESCO Brazil and the Ministry of Environment of Brazil, which aims to work together for translation and dissemination of the UN CC:Learn introductory e-course on climate change.
This collaboration's goal is to facilitate access to basic climate change related information in Brazil, Portugal and lusophone countries all over the world in order to ensure as many people understand the basics of climate change as well as the challenges it brings. The translated e-course is planned to be launched around early 2017 in Brazil.
