@ClimateInteract Partner With @ClimateWed To Organize @WorldClimate Simulation In Nigeria
LAGOS, 28th July, 2016 - Climate Interactive is a not-for-profit organization based in Washington DC. Our team helps people see what works to address climate change and related issues like energy, water, food, and disaster risk reduction.
seeks to identify key climate based issues affecting development specifically in Nigeria, and Africa overall. It looks at the issue of climate, thinking locally, and then acting globally. This way, we are able to imbibe our local realities and present them on the table of global action steps towards mitigating effects of climate change.
ABOUT WORLD CLIMATE
The World Climate Simulation gives people a taste of what it is like to be a negotiator at the UN climate change negotiations. World Climate was developed by Climate Interactive, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Sloan School of Management, and the University of Massachusetts Lowell (UML) Climate Change Initiative. During the simulation, World Climate participants become negotiators for different regions of the world and work to negotiate a global climate agreement. As they negotiate, participants learn about important carbon emission trends, global power dynamics, and what it takes to prevent catastrophic climate change. Over 15,000 people in over 50 countries have participated in World Climate simulation events led by people from all different sectors from top business leaders to students.
ABOUT THE EVENTS
These simulation and training events will support attendees in becoming World Climate facilitators, so they can run the simulation with other climate leaders and expand climate change awareness and decision making. The training will allow you to experience the World Climate simulation as well as learn how to use some of Climate Interactive science-based computer models. Overall, the events demonstrate the contribution of systems thinking and the application of system dynamics to climate change.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a UN climate negotiator? Join us to experience the science and policy dynamics in an interactive World Climate simulation that will put you into the role of a UN climate negotiator. People around the world are using this simulation developed by Climate Interactive and MIT to engage audiences on climate change. Ahead of COP22 climate talks in Marrakech, Morocco, Climate Interactive and the University of Mohammed VI Polytechnic in Morocco, are offering trainings and events to expand the use of these systems thinking tools in order to expand the engagement and awareness of African leaders in climate change negotiations.
We are pleased to announce a series of World Climate Simulation events and training of facilitators in Ghana and Nigeria in the month of July.
Join us to
1. Learn more about the science, policy, and dynamics of climate change.
2. Negotiate a global climate agreement during the World Climate simulation.
3. Get training on how you can share insights about climate change with others.
