I'm going to start a broader North East topic to be a little more fuzzy in where the boundry is. I'm in Poughkeepsie NY.
Upcoming Event: En-ROADS breakout at Citizens Climate Lobby North East Regional Conference.
On March 7th in Troy, NY I'll be running the En-ROADS workshop as part of the CCL regional conference in our breakouts. The conference runs March 6 - 8.

I'm in State College, PA. I have not run any En-ROADS workshops yet but I have given some public talks about climate change. I had been looking for something more interactive for my talks and am hoping En-ROADS can help. I have found showing local examples of climate change in my talks is helpful, so I have some slides on Pennsylvania and the Northeast US. Here is one recent talk that I gave to a local discussions group. Feel free to use any of this material in your outreach.
I'll be in the DC area during the week of March 23 and could perhaps fit this in.
Even though En-ROADS is a global model, I find that it's always good to share information about local impacts when giving any presentation about climate change. A good place to start for the Northeast US is the National Climate Assessment, which is broken down by regions. Here is the Northeast chapter of the report:
Climate Summit Game - see registration links below.
In honor of Earth Day, let's find a date where we can have a Climate Summit and solve global warming once and for all! In order to accommodate the anticipated interest in this activity, we are attempting to schedule several events on two different weekends. Please join us and register for a session!
Each of these events requires a minimum of 20 participants to proceed, and is limited to a maximum of 50 negotiators (on 5 teams). Participation is on a first-come-first-served basis. Please be willing to commit to all three hours as you will be a member of a team.
Are you available at any of these times? If so, follow the links to register for one of these events on Eventbrite. Feel free to share the registration information with family and friends. (Each event must have a minimum of 20 registrants to proceed) All events have a maximum of 50 participants.
You will receive a confirmation email upon registration and more information will be distributed the week of the climate summit.

Thank you for all you do to teach people about global warming and climate change!
Hello! May you be well. I will start my facilitator training in August after completing two courses in which I currently am enrolled. However, I am looking for a facilitator to conduct a remote live training in the use of the Climate Action Simulation Game, En-Roads and C-Roads. The workshop is slated for Thursday, August 12th, with 9 a.m. , 9:15 a.m. or 9:30 a.m. as a start time.
The training is for a group of 12 faculty who are receiving professional development so that they might turnkey what they have learned with their students who will be participating in a global solutions sustainability project.
The faculty will facilitate the students' progress on the project.
Would anyone on this forum be able to assist me in this endeavour?
If so, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and place
C-Roads in the Subject Line so that I know the communication's provenance.
I thank you for your time and consideration.
I would be glad to help out! I am an En-ROADS ambassador, a retired HS STEM teacher and I have facilitated the events you describe in your post. I have also facilitated professional development training for teachers here in NJ. And I am free on 8/12.
You can find out more about me on my website, https://www.sgoldeneducation.com. You can contact me there or email me directly if you'd like to work together. I'd be glad to send you my resume and/or discuss the details.
