In 2022, 165 units directly related to SDG13 were offered across Monash University, with a total enrolment of 10,436 individual students.
The units highlighted below are a small sample of the units at Monash relating to climate action:
The Climate Justice Clinic, a Monash Law School specialist clinic at the Monash Law Chambers, gives students practical experience of a wide range of legal work in a number of commercial law practice areas, with an overarching focus on climate justice. Students work with leading Australian environmental organisations, senior barristers working in Environment and Climate law, community organisations and campaign groups, and collaborate with community legal services throughout Victoria. The Climate Justice Clinic also helps students contextualise the clinics’ legal work within the broader climate justice movement, and features regular guest speakers from public and private sector law firms and environmental NGOs.
Monash Sustainable Development Institute, ClimateWorks Centre and Monash Executive Education in Monash Business School have partnered to deliver a program on Climate Change and Business Risk. Developed for senior managers and executives in finance, risk, operations, strategy and corporate affairs, the course is designed with a commercial focus to help those enrolled develop, implement and interrogate their organisation’s approaches for incorporating climate change into strategy.
