If we're to meet the needs of a sustainable and healthy world for future generations, one of the greatest challenges we face is to overcome the ignorance and indifference people may have about global change issues. GCI believes that education plays a critical role in overcoming this.

In 2013, The University of Queensland became one of only two Australian universities to join EdX, the exclusive Harvard-MIT online learning platform offering free courses known as ‘Massive Open Online Courses’ or MOOCs.

The Global Change Institute put together one of only four MOOCs offered in the university’s first year of involvement, a course about tropical ecosystems.

GCI also offers internship opportunities for students and volunteering opportunities as well. These are updated regularly on our ‘Internships’ page.
