What is the En-ROADS Climate Workshop?

The En-ROADS Climate Workshop is an interactive experience which helps build support for strategies to address climate change through the testing of the En-ROADS Climate Simulator The resulting experience is hopeful, scientifically-grounded, action-oriented, and eye-opening.

Co-developed with the MIT Sustainability Initiative, the workshop is set up as an interactive group learning experience that promotes greater understanding of the causes of climate change and the solutions essential to mitigating it. It is framed by the En-ROADS simulator, which allows participants to explore and rapidly assess the impacts of different solutions to climate change—like energy supply subsidies, energy efficiency, or land use changes.
