The En-ROADS Climate Workshop
What is the En-ROADS Workshop?
How does it work?
The En-ROADS Climate Workshop is an interactive group exercise guided by a trained facilitator where people work together to test solutions for addressing climate change. In the workshop, participants propose climate solutions such as energy efficiency, carbon pricing, fossil fuel taxes, reducing deforestation, and carbon dioxide removal. The facilitator then tests these approaches in the En-ROADS Climate Solutions Simulator, so participants can see the impact on global temperature and other factors in real-time. The goal of the workshop is to create a scenario that limits global warming to well below 2°C and aims for 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, the international goals formally recognized in the Paris climate agreement.
The workshop can be run online or in-person and can accommodate groups of any size. People from all different backgrounds and levels of familiarity with climate change can learn from this experience. The workshop can be very brief, or cover a half day, and can include any number of people. Materials, training, and the simulation are all free, and many resources are offered in several languages.
Leading the Workshop
