As a Partner with Climate Interactive, we have run several climate negotiation exercises with town, church, corporate, and professional communities, using both the scientifically validated C-ROADS and En-ROADS climate change systems dynamics simulation models. This powerful workshop brings to light the level of commitments required by nations (C-ROADS), or by different industry sectors (En-ROADS) to meet our climate goals. The workshop uses the very same fast simulation model used to support climate negotiations worldwide. It is a nuanced workshop that also simulates the social dynamics of negotiations, and is a “must experience” for every community serious about understanding the challenge before us.
More recently, we worked to adapt and use En-ROADS for the 2016 NASPAA Student Competition, developing implementation feasibility logic, structure, and user interface using the Forio Online Simulation platform.
