Have you ever considered being a delegate to the United Nations General Assembly? Now is your chance.
Join this role play game and negotiate policies to reach the Paris Agreement goal of a global temperature rise below 1.5ºC of pre-industrial levels.
Participants in the game take on roles of leaders of major clean technology companies, fossil fuel companies, government representatives from developed and developing countries, industry and commerce organizations, and climate action think tanks and advocates.
Players get short briefing statements about their sector and a set of decisions and actions to choose from. They can put a price on carbon pollution, subsidize or tax any type of energy source, invest R&D for new energy and carbon capture technologies, increase energy efficiency, electrify buildings and transport, manage land use, and more. Each group is challenged to build their own plan to save humanity from global heating. The experience is highly interactive, fun, and engaging.
Stay tuned for the new date once it has been re-scheduled (in a month or two)
