The World Climate simulation brings immersive, experiential learning together with rigorous science in a new approach to climate change education. World Climate puts participants in the roles of delegates to the UN climate negotiations and challenges them to create a global deal that meets international climate goals. Their decisions are entered into our state-of-the-art interactive computer simulation, C-ROADS, enabling them real-time feedback about the climate outcomes expected from their decisions. World Climate has been experienced by >14,000 people in 50 countries around the world and covered by Science magazine and the ABC News.
