Partnership Event with Cook County Higher Education & Cook County Local Energy Project (CCLEP)
En-ROADS can help people make connections between things they care about and the possibilities available to help with a resilient future.
What is En-ROADS?
The En-ROADS simulator is a fast, powerful climate simulation tool for better understanding how changes to energy, land use, consumption, agriculture, and policies can create climate impact. Why was En-ROADS created?
En-ROADS was designed to provide a synthesis of the best available science on climate solutions. Community members are enabled to explore the long-term climate impacts of global policy and investment decisions.
What to expect: In the workshop, participants propose climate solutions such as energy efficiency, carbon pricing, fossil fuel taxes, reducing deforestation, and carbon dioxide removal. The facilitator then tests these approaches in the En-ROADS Climate Solutions Simulator, so participants can see the impact on global temperature and other factors in real-time. The goal of the workshop is to create a scenario that limits global warming to well below 2°C and aims for 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, the international goals formally recognized in the Paris climate agreement.
