The problems associated with climate disruption are enormous and multifaceted. It can be challenging to know where to take effective action. This presentation helps people make connections between things they care about and the possibilities available to help ensure a resilient future. Presenters will work interactively with the audience to quickly see the long-term effects of the global climate policies and actions they imagine.

We’ll be using the En-ROADS global climate simulator. This tool allows users to explore the impact of roughly 30 policies—such as electrifying transport, pricing carbon, and improving agricultural practices—on hundreds of factors like energy prices, temperature, air quality, and sea level rise.
Developed by Climate Interactive, the MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative, and Ventana Systems, En-ROADS is a system dynamics model carefully grounded in the best available science, and has been calibrated against a wide range of existing integrated assessment, climate, and energy models. En-ROADS runs on an ordinary laptop in a fraction of a second, is freely available online, offers an intuitive user-friendly interface, and is available in over a dozen languages. Please come and envision a livable planet together.

Citizens’ Climate Education (CCE) is a nonpartisan grassroots organization that empowers people from diverse backgrounds to educate key stakeholders, policymakers, and the general public about effective solutions to climate change. This powerful corps of climate advocates builds political will for long-lasting climate solutions at the federal and state level.
