I lead Sustainability Education at University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and am co-teaching a class called "Pathways to Renewable Energy," in which we are making use of En-Roads and a Climate Action Simulation event as a way for students to explore pathways and tradeoffs of various technology and policy choices. Students are working in groups of 7 to 8, representing the stakeholder groups, and will prepare a technical briefing and a policy briefing, as well as a "Minnesota statement" on what their scenario would mean in our state.
Our Climate Action Simulation is March 3 from 1-2:15 in Minneapolis. If you are a fellow Minnesotan on this forum, please be in touch, as Paul Imbertson and I would welcome you to join us that day.
I have hosted and led the World Climate Simulation about 7 times in the past 2 1/2 years, and am interested in possibly using both exercises in class or in community events in the future.

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.
