Addis Ababa University, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
1 June 2016
Climate Interactive and the Institute of Peace and Security Studies (IPSS) at Addis Ababa University are pleased to announce a Climate Interactive workshop, including a World Climate simulation event of the UN climate negotiations and exploration of tools used to explore pathways to addressing climate change. Later this year the UN will hold the COP22 climate talks in Marrakech, Morocco. Climate Interactive with the University Mohammed VI Polytechnique – Morocco and other partners are working to expand engagement across Africa.
Join us to:
• Learn more about the science, policy, and dynamics of climate change.
• Negotiate a global climate agreement during the World Climate simulation.
• Get training on how you can share insights about climate change with others.
ABOUT WORLD CLIMATE: The World Climate Simulation gives people a taste of what it is like to be a negotiator at the UN climate change negotiations. World Climate was developed by Climate Interactive, MIT Sloan School of Management, and the UML Climate Change Initiative. During the simulation, World Climate participants become negotiators for different regions of the world and work to negotiate a global climate agreement. As they negotiate, participants learn about important carbon emission trends, global power dynamics, and what it takes to prevent catastrophic climate change. Over 14,000 people in over 50 countries have participated in World Climate simulation events led by people from all different sectors from top business leaders to students.
ABOUT THE TRAINING: This training will support attendees in becoming World Climate facilitators, so they can run the simulation with others and expand climate change awareness. The training will allow you to experience the World Climate simulation and then learn techniques for running the exercise and using Climate Interactive’s tools yourself. The training also demonstrates the contribution of systems thinking and the application of system dynamics to climate change.
The training and event will be conducted entirely in English.
