Toronto high school students are being encouraged to wreak environmental havoc on imaginary populations — with the goal of learning more about adapting to climate change.
A new course, called “Studying Climate Change, Health and Adaptation,” began as a workshop for high school students but is now part of the curriculum.
It was created by Brad Bass, an Environment Canada climate scientist who works out of the University of Toronto’s Centre for Environment. The course was built around a computer program he developed called COBWEB, for Complexity and Organized Behaviour Within Environmental Bounds.
