Climate change negotiations activity
An activity that encourages students to form opinions on the issues of climate change and put forward arguments in a simulated world climate change conference scenario. Groups are assigned to one of ten countries from around the world and represent them and pledge emission reductions. Both qualitative and quantitative skills are used to analyse data from photographs, graphs, statistical tables which are provided for each country. Climate science, adaptation, mitigations and economic factors culminate in a final voting process that aims to generate class discussions and debate.
