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, Green Africa Youth (GAYO) with support from 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.
Join us to:
- Learn more about the science, policy, and dynamics of climate change.
- Negotiate a global climate agreement during the World Climate simulation.
- Get training on how you can share insights about climate change with others.
Green Africa Youth Organization is a youthled, gender balanced, non-profit organization focused on environmental protection, climate change, and youth empowerment. GAYO, over the years, has partnered with several local and international organizations to lead climate and sustainable development events/campaigns targeted at clean energy, greener lifestyle, and ecosystem protection. GAYO is dedicated to give young environmental activists a training opportunity and to have a feel of UN COP negotiations.
ABOUT THE WORLD CLIMATE EVENT:
The World Climate Simulation event 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.
The event will allow you to learn how to use some of Climate Interactive ‘s science-based computer models. The events will be conducted entirely in English.
Note: We shall not cater for your accommodation/transport to these events, but shall provide refreshment during the event.
