Whether you teach environmental science, economics, or ecology, the free En-ROADS climate simulator is a great tool to analyze our options for mitigating global warming and climate change! It provides for student-driven questions and analyses with different levels of information. There is some curricula already written, so you may chose to distribute the prepared materials as an assignment, or you can use it for a workshop or role play game (a UN Climate Summit).
The En-ROADS Climate Workshop helps build support for strategies to address climate change via interactive testing of the cutting-edge simulation model En-ROADS. The resulting experience is hopeful, scientifically-grounded, action-oriented, and eye-opening.
The workshop has been run for the U.S. Congress, Stattnet in Norway, a community group in Atlanta, the Energy Transition Forum in London, HSBC bank, the U.S. Climate Action Network, the UN Secretary-General’s Office, and many others. It is designed to be run by anyone dedicated enough to learn its facilitation – and can be run both in-person and online. Materials, training, and the simulation are all free thanks to generous philanthropic support.
