The World Bank Institute decided to create an online course directed at leaders of towns, cities and urban regions to encourage the use of positive climate actions in their planning. This course was to be incorporated into their current Learning Management System (Moodle).
Working with a renowned subject matter expert in climate change, TM NewMedia shot and edited a variety of video interviews with city leaders from around the world. The content of these videos was incorporated into storyboards written to provide the narration scripts, interactions and imagery used in the course.
- A nine-module course on how towns, cities and urban regions in the developing world can lead climate actions and achieve great things for their citizens, and for humanity.
- Flash-based lessons provide a combination of written text with narration, video interviews, animations, and simple interactions and links to a wide variety of available resources.
- Pilot delivery to leaders in major cities throughout the developing world.
- Course created in both English and Spanish.
