You speak English, are older than 14 years and interested in climate change? We had invited to participate in the Climate Action Simulation, a role-playing game that uses the En-ROADS (Energy-Rapid Overview Decision Support) simulation model. The first part of the workshop took place on July 15 at 2:30 pm. The workshop is recorded and can be seen here.
The Climate Action Simulation is a role-playing game that uses the En-ROADS (Energy-Rapid Overview and Decision Support) simulation model. En-ROADS explores the global interactions of energy systems, economic and social development and the climate system. Participants come together in an UN emergency meeting playing the role of global stakeholders of a variety of interest groups like industry, business, environmentalists, NGO’s and governments that can significantly influence directly or indirectly the emission of greenhouse gases. The goal of the meeting is to work out policy solutions and concrete action plan that is suitable to achieve a limitation of global warming well below 2° Celsius. The stakeholder groups’ proposals are analyzed instantaneously with the En-ROADS simulator to show their effects on the climate system.
