Climate Simulations for UMN Student Groups
Want to try your hand at navigating climate challenges?
In higher education, it’s often students behind the biggest, most impactful calls for change and action. That’s why IonE, in partnership with the Footprint Project and Renewable Energy Partners, are hosting a climate action simulation as a way for UMN student groups to practice their negotiation skills as they try to agree on a set of solutions to global climate change.
The tool featured in this workshop is En-ROADS. En-ROADS, which is built like a group role-playing game, allows participants to understand the likely consequences of energy, economic growth, land use, and other policies and uncertainties. Members of the U.S. Congress, the UN Secretary-General’s Office, large corporations, community organizers, Bill Nye, and others have all given En-ROADS a try. Now it’s your turn!
Is your student group interested? Sign up to join the simulated negotiations on March 23 from 6 – 7:30 pm. Individuals not with a particular student group are also welcome to sign up.
