Limiting negative climate change requires significant and immediate reductions in green-house gas emissions. There has been some notable international action here – most recently the 2015 Paris Agreement. But it is not sufficient to stabilise global temperature increases. Governments recognise the need to act. But turning words into practical action is difficult. To understand this collective action problem, we will run a simulation of climate change negotiations in which participants will represent big emitters such as China and the USA. The simulation raises awareness of the sorts of issue the COP-26 meeting will confront when it convenes in Glasgow in November.
