Speakers: Professor Alice Bows-Larkin, Director of Tyndall Manchester.
As world leaders prepare to gather in Paris, the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research will host a mock UN climate negotiation in Manchester. This event is an opportunity for you to discuss the issues at stake for each country, and learn about trends in climate, energy and greenhouse gas emissions.
The World Climate Exercise was developed by Climate Interactive and MIT. Thousands of people have participated in these events around the world, from primary school classes to major business CEOs. It is regularly used in our teaching at The University of Manchester.
Underlying your negotiations, of where and when emissions will be cut, is a robust climate model so delegates will have real time results on the likely consequences.
This event is run in conjunction with: Manchester: A Certain Future
