UN Climate Negotiation Simulation

Apr

09

Lund, Sweden

Countries all over the world have committed to reduce their carbon emissions in order to reach the goal of the Paris Climate Agreement of a maximum of 2°Celsius global warming. However, reaching this goal may be more challenging in practice, as there are large differences between countries. From their contributions, to their resources to protect themselves against the severe consequences of climate change, and their general capabilities to reduce territorial emissions. This creates a lot of tensions between different parties, since only few are willing to put action against climate change on top of their agenda.

Do you want to step in the shoes of one of these countries?

As part of the Lund Sustainability Week, Oikos Lund organizes a UN Climate Negotiation Simulation. During this event, you can choose a country whose interest you will have to present in several rounds of negotiations. Think wisely about your decisions – In this interactive role-playing they may make or break reaching the goal of less than 2°Celsius.

Interested? Then join us on April 9th at 16:30 in LUSEUM, EC1:131. We hope to see you there!
