Can you negotiate a strategy for limiting global heating to 1.5 DegC?

Using the C-Roads and En-Roads climate simulation models we run role-play events in which participants are divided into groups representing government, business and civil society with the task of negotiating and agreeing a strategy for reducing emissions of green house gas to ensure that global heating stays well below 2 DegC or even as low as 1.5 DegC.

Find out more here: Climate Interactive, Climate Simulation Game.

In these events, we will introduce you to the simulator, facilitate rounds of discussion and subsequent negotiation between different stakeholders, reflect upon and discuss the outcomes and issues that arise.
