Here are the World Climate briefing materials, which are used to orient participants in a World Climate simulation to their assigned roles. You can choose to use the 3 region or the 6 region briefings depending on the size of your group. There are also auxiliary briefing statements that have been added for those facilitators that want to include even more roles.
These materials have been developed by the team at Climate Interactive, Dr. John Sterman at MIT Sloan, and Dr. Juliette Rooney Varga of the UMass Lowell Climate Change Initiative. Translations of these materials have been graciously provided by many volunteers, see the credits for the latest updates below.
