EN-ROADS Climate Action Simulation

Agricultural Soil Carbon in En-ROADS from Climate Interactive on Vimeo.

The online simulator “EN-ROADS” created by Climate Interactive in collaboration with MIT and UMass, provides the opportunity to test and explore cross-sector climate solutions and can be used by anyone freely accessible and uses real data. 

To encourage its usage, they have created an interactive, group role playing game called “Climate Action Simulation”. The participants separate into groups with different leader roles in related sectors such as business, government and civil society. The goal is to limit global warming to less than 2.0 degree Celsius. After the groups come up with their solutions such as; energy supply subsidies, land use changes, etc., they give short speeches and negotiate with the other groups in order to execute their plans and take action. The game is designed to act as an emergency climate summit organized by UN.
