    Facilitator for ’other developed countries’ in mock UN climate negotiations
    of the World Climate Exercise, Manchester, UK
    In this role play the attendees pretend to be delegates of a specified country
    (or country group) in the UN climate change negotiations. The facilitators
    lead the country groups playing the role of a UN leader. The aim of the game
    is to negotiate an agreement to keep the climate warming below 2 ◦C. An
    interactive computer model is used to rapidly analise the results of the mock
    negotiations in order to achieve the (below) 2 ◦C target.
