Registration is now closed (this event already took place).
Thousands around the world have participated in the World Climate Exercise since its debut. Audiences have included: Nobel-prize winning scientists, a former US Secretary of State, university presidents, European Union policymakers, oil executives, the U.S. Forest Service, MIT Executive MBA students, and countless classrooms from high schools to universities. In 2015, it was featured at the White House at an event on climate change education.
The international youth think tank CliMates even runs a campaign called COPinMyCity for young people around the world to lead World Climate in their communities and link efforts to advance international climate policy.
Your goal will be to reduce greenhouse gas levels by 2100 at a level that keeps global warming well below 2 degrees celsius above preindustrial levels. To do this, you will have to agree on a deal to share the costs of taking on this challenge and aid less developed nations.
It is REQUIRED that you submit your position paper on a country or region of at least a paragraph by Saturday 14th at 2 pm.
