Cultivate climate leadership by leading a World Climate simulation in your community. The World Climate role playing exercise puts participants in the middle of the UN climate negotiations, immersing people in the policy, science, and actions that need to be taken to address climate change. World Climate has been played by tens of thousands of people in over 50 countries. Now, with the latest round of the UN climate talks scheduled this November in Morocco, we are elevating the reach of this tool throughout Africa.
Sign up if you’re interested in learning about leading this simulation in Africa:
Developed by Climate Interactive, MIT, and the UMass Lowell Climate Change Initiative, World Climate has proven to be a transformative experience for participants. To ground the simulation in the best available science on climate change, World Climate uses the C-ROADS climate policy simulator, a computer model used to analyze climate policies that is used by top climate decision-makers and is available for free.
Climate Interactive in partnership with the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University in Morocco and others will be building a team of facilitators to bring World Climate to communities and groups from Accra to Johannesburg to Nairobi as we build momentum going into the COP22 climate talks in Marrakech this November.
We will be offering trainings in major African cities and providing online webinars to equip people interested in becoming facilitators. Climate change is a challenge that confronts us all. Join us as we work together to spread awareness of what we can do to address global warming.
