Location: Rove Downtown, 312 Al Mustaqbal St, Za'abeel, Dubai
What is the EN-ROADS workshop?
We’re excited to bring the En-ROADS Climate Workshop, co-developed with the MIT Sustainability Initiative, to the UAE for the first time. This is an interactive group experience that uses the En-ROADS climate solutions simulator and gives users the opportunity to test out different climate change solutions, en route to creating a future that limits global warming to well below 2°C from pre-industrial levels, in line with the Paris Agreement.
To-date, this simulation has been used by nearly 200,000 people in 130+ countries, including 6500+ top decision-makers in government, business, and civil society.
Who is it for?
This workshop is a unique opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of climate change causes and solutions and is perfect for anyone who wants to help position their organisations at the forefront of environmentally conscious and sustainable business practices.
