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 use En-ROADS, an interactive climate simulator built with MIT Sloan, to test the impact of global climate policies and solutions. The goal of the workshop is to create a scenario using En-ROADS 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.
CAN I RUN THE WORKSHOP?
Anyone with enough interest and dedication can learn to lead the En-ROADS Climate Workshop. People from all different backgrounds and levels of familiarity with climate change can learn from this experience. The workshop can be run online or in-person and can accommodate groups of any size. All materials needed to run the workshop are free and available online, many of which are offered in a number of languages.
HOW DO I LEARN HOW TO LEAD IT?
The best way to learn how to run the En-ROADS Climate Workshop is by participating in the online Mastering En-ROADS Training Series. This free 8-week program will teach you everything you need to know about the En-ROADS Climate Workshop. In addition, this training will advance your understanding of the En-ROADS Simulator – exploring the dynamics driving our climate and energy system, interdisciplinary climate solutions, advanced facilitation tips, themes of equity and justice, event planning, and more.
By signing up for this course you will join a vibrant community of educators, policymakers, activists, professionals, community organizers, and students who are running their own En-ROADS events – delivering insights, and cultivating climate leadership worldwide.
While you don’t need to complete the Mastering En-ROADS Training Series to run the workshop, exploring videos from the series is the best way to boost your knowledge about the En-ROADS simulator and host a successful event. In particular, we recommend watching videos from Module 3 of the series, “The En-ROADS Climate Workshop”. In addition, The Workshop Facilitator Guide is a comprehensive manual which will walk you through how to organize and lead an En-ROADS Climate Workshop.
When you’re ready to run your workshop, you can find the materials you’ll need to run your event in the section below. We update our materials every few months to keep up with our latest facilitation techniques, simulator updates, and general climate science – so make sure you have the latest version before running your next event! All materials needed to run the workshop are free and available online, many of which are offered in a number of languages.
