About this Event
How do we reach net zero fast enough to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees? Should we improve energy efficiency or plant forests? Tax fossil fuels or electrify transport? Promote plant-based diets or invest in carbon removal technologies?
Join us for an interactive session where we will explore all these questions with the help of the En-ROADS climate action simulator, developed by Climate Interactive and MIT Sloan Sustainability.
We will set up a mock UN climate emergency summit where you will be assigned one of a few roles: head of an industry giant, food company, or energy provider, climate activist or a leader of a small island nation at risk of submergence through sea-level rise.
The goal of the summit is to develop a global policy that will keep global warming within 1.5 degrees — the threshold set by the Paris Agreement. The delegates will negotiate to make sure the policy is both realistic and fair.
