COP19 Warsaw in Kuala Lumpur Simulation

COP19 Warsaw in Kuala Lumpur Simulation
Past Event

9:00 - 11:00
Room 202, Block U, Faculty of Engineering, University of Malaya

COP19 Warsaw in Kuala Lumpur World Climate is a half-day simulation-based role-playing exercise that gives groups of 10 to 50 people an experience of reaching a global agreement to mitigate climate change.Set up as a highly simplified UN negotiation similar to what took place in Copenhagen in 2009, the exercise asks participants to play the role of delegates from India, China, the US, the EU, Brazil, island nations, and other regions.  Negotiators work together to reach a global accord that meets the group’s goal for CO2 levels.  The UN Secretary General receives pledges from three different blocs, asks his technical staff to simulate them in the C-ROADS climate simulation, developed by Climate Interactive, and informs delegates of the results.  Often, the teams must go back for another round of debate, strategizing, and collaboration.
What is [COP in MyCity]?
COP in MyCity is a youth-led project which ambitions to bridge the gap between climate negotiations (a.k.a. COPs) and the mainstream public, foster education and action about climate change locally and create an international community of youth climate leaders committed to the success of COP21 (2015).

• During COP19 → We will be organizing Simulation for Education and Awareness-raising: in order to reach as many people as possible, we need to ensure that everyone understands what is at stake as simulation games are one of the best tools to make people understand climate negotiations and climate issues.

• After COP19 → Debriefing: This time is devoted to discussion within our team and within the COP in MyCity community. We will share the results of our simulations and get all our positions discussed. This is also the time where we will each discuss about what we can do at our city’s level to fight against climate. We will share the results of our simulations and get all our positions discussed. This is also the time where we will each discuss about what we can do at our city’s level to fight against climate change.

Our goals:
1. Bring the expertise about climate change to young people and citizens, raise awareness about the COP and act locally by gathering climate actors in our cities.
2. Influence the climate negotiations by building a common vision using the tool of simulation games.

The final objective?
COP21, which will take place in Paris in 2015. This is the deadline countries have set for themselves to come to a global agreement on cutting their carbon emissions, for the first time in the history of climate negotiations. We must act for COP21 to succeed and provide humanity with a strong legal framework to avoid catastrophic climate change.
