Simulations & games

Climate Interactive

     · Climate Action Simulation

     · World Climate Simulation

     · “Established in 2005, Climate Interactive is rooted in the fields of system dynamics modeling and

       systems thinking. Through this lens, and in partnership with the MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative,

       we create and share tools that help people see connections and drive effective and equitable climate

       action. Climate Interactive hosts a team of system dynamics modelers who create user-friendly

       climate simulators—spanning topics of international policy, cutting-edge climate solutions, energy

       dynamics, climate justice, food systems, and more. We then amplify the insights from these tools

       through interactive workshops, role-playing games, and events led by our team and an international

       network of trained facilitators. From start to finish, Climate Interactive’s aim is to synthesize technical

       climate science into accessible mediums, and harness the power of experiential learning to engage

       and inform people around high-leverage, equitable climate solutions.”
