Climate Interactive Game

Join us to experience what it's like to negotiate a climate deal to address one of the greatest human and environmental challenges of this century.

It uses the En-ROADS simulation model to engage a wide range of participants in exploring key technology and policy solutions for addressing climate change. The game is conducted as a simulated emergency summit organized by the United Nations that convenes global stakeholders. In the game, it's our job to establish a concrete plan that limits global warming to Paris Agreement goals.
