    Jennifer Campion

    Chapter from the book: Bowell, T et al. 2024. Revitalising Higher Education: Insights from Te Puna Aurei LearnFest 2022.


    Climate change is a cross-sectoral, global phenomenon. For educators, it is a topic that crosses a range of academic disciplines, and spans highly technical, complex scientific considerations as well as wider ethical and equitable concerns. In 2022, the University of Waikato introduced the Bachelor of Climate Change degree (BCC). This specialist programme gives students cross disciplinary expertise, including in legal aspects of climate change. Consequently, the law curriculum was refreshed to support BCC students as well as students enrolling in established law programmes. This chapter will discuss this curriculum refresh and share some of the learnings from Te Piringa’s experiences.
