Our World Climate Exercise, a role-playing game that simulates the UN climate change negotiations, has been played around the world from classes of school children in Austria to a visiting group of Chinese officials at MIT. The interest and enthusiasm from the community of people leading this exercise has meant several have volunteered to translate our materials from English into French, Chinese, and German.

Materials for the exercise in French are the latest addition to the collection, which we recently received from Laurent Richard, a French math teacher in Boston. You can find these materials and our other translations among the facilitator’s resources on our website. Let me know if you’ve used World Climate — we are always interested to find out how our tools have been of use and would love further translation of our materials.
