Climate change has emerged as one of the most critical challenges in the 21st century. The relentless rise in global temperatures has far-reaching implications for natural and socio-economic systems, public health, and the lives of individuals worldwide. Tackling the complex, cascading, and systemic risks arising from human-induced climate change is an urgent priority for the decades ahead.

Fudan University (FDU), with the support of the World Meteorological Organization/Global Atmosphere Watch Programme (WMO/GAW), the Monitoring, Analysis, and Prediction of Air Quality International Research Program (MAP-AQ), and the Integrated Research on Disaster Risk International Program (IRDR), has established a groundbreaking decade-long summer school program dedicated to exploring climate change and its associated risks. This event will be organized by Fudan University's Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (AOS), the IRDR International Centre of Excellence on Risk Interconnectivity and Governance on Weather/Climate Extremes Impact and Public Health (ICoE-RIG-WECEIPHE), and the MAP-AQ Asian Office Shanghai.

In 2024, the International Summer School Program on Climate Change and Related Risks will be held at Fudan University’s Jiangwan campus from July 21 to August 8, with a focus on climate change and air quality. The summer school has invited internationally renowned scholars and officials who are at the forefront of their respective fields and have extensive teaching experience to deliver lectures. 

The program is organized into three modules: (a) Science Basis of Climate Change, (b) Climate Change Governance, and (c) Climate Change – Air Quality – Health Nexus. The summer school will be conducted entirely in English.


The summer school welcomes applications from students, postdocs, and early-career professionals worldwide. From the applicant pool, 100-200 outstanding participants will be selected to attend the program. 

The summer school does not charge any tuition fees. However, participants are responsible for covering their own expenses related to meals, transportation, and accommodation. Limited scholarships are available for international applicants to cover their international travel (economy class), accommodation, and meal expenses.


Applications are now open, and the deadline for submission is June 15, 2024. 

Applicants interested in being considered for a scholarship must submit their application by May 20, 2024.
