Join our July Chapter meeting: The En-ROADS Climate Workshop presented by Climate Leader Will Musser, PhD.

The En-ROADS Climate Workshop helps build support for strategies to address climate change via interactive testing of the cutting-edge simulation model En-ROADS, created by Climate Interactive and MIT Sloan. 

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 using En-ROADS so that participants can see the impact on global temperature and other factors.

Join us to experience what it’s like to create your own climate future using grounded conversations; the resulting experience is hopeful, scientifically-grounded, action-oriented, and eye-opening.

Will Musser, PhD grew up in PA, attended college in VA, completed grad school in MT, his clinical internship in NC, and lived and worked in CO , CT, and CA before settling in his current home of Portland, OR. He was trained as a Climate Reality Leader in 2017 in Denver, and is a member of Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL). He is trained by Climate Interactive to present the En-ROADS Climate Change Solutions Simulator, and is in the process of applying to become a Climate Ambassador for Climate Interactive.

En-ROADS is a freely-available online climate change policy simulation model that provides stakeholders (i.e., policymakers, educators, businesses, the media, and the public) with the ability to explore dynamics in energy supply, land-use, transportation, carbon removal, and more. It offers unique insights on how these driving forces – and the policies which dictate their behavior – affect a variety of climate change impacts, from global temperature change to sea level rise.

Developed by Climate Interactive and MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative, En-ROADS is a system dynamics model that weaves together the best available science and research into how our world reacts to interventions into our energy and land-use choices. It factors in important dynamics such as delay times, progress ratios, price sensitivities, historic growth of energy sources, and energy efficiency potential.
