Climate Action Simulation Workshop for Global Climate Action Day 2021
Curious about climate solutions? Join student Sustainability Ambassadors on Global Climate Action Day 2021 to learn about global climate solutions. You're invited to participate in an interactive virtual Climate Action Simulation Workshop using the En-ROADS modeling tool, which was developed by Climate Interactive and MIT. This free virtual workshop will be led by Sustainability Ambassador Carbon Neutrality Team Leader Phoebe Heretz (Physics/Astronomy ‘24) and Andrea Frank, Associate Professor at SUNY New Paltz.
During the workshop, participants propose climate solutions such as energy efficiency, carbon pricing, fossil fuel taxes, reducing deforestation, or carbon dioxide removal. The facilitator then tests these approaches in the cutting-edge and science-based En-ROADS Climate Solutions Simulator, so participants can see the impact on global temperature, sea-level rise, and other factors. The resulting experience is hopeful, scientifically-grounded, action-oriented, and eye-opening.
