we are very pleased to inform you about the second uptake of a new and innovative format that we started a year ago – our AGEP Simulation Game series. It uses a blended-learning approach, combining virtual elements with real-life interaction. The topic of the second event will again be:
“Beyond Paris – What Future for International Climate Policy”
In it, we will simulate the next COP (Conference of the Parties) of the United Nations. After the climate conference in Paris in December 2015, the negotiation agenda for climate diplomacy has changed. Some of the disputes that have existed over the years have been settled. But the real work is now only beginning: The framework contract of Paris must be implemented in concrete policy! For our planning game, we have selected some of the remaining points: Improving the self-imposed emission targets, the design of climate finance, the possible use of technical innovation in the fight against climate change and the taxation of emissions in air traffic and of merchant shipping.
Being implemented by our partner planpolitik, the simulation game will start with a two-week online period in which you – representing a country assigned to you – must negotiate and interact through certain phases of the game. Being able to access the browser-based application from any device (laptop, tablet, smartphone) you can work on your tasks unbound of place and time.
The virtual simulation is using Senaryon – the online platform developed by planpolitik.
For a quick overview on what to expect, please have a look at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5A73zQa0hk
After the end of the online phase, participants will then gather with your fellow students from other AGEP study programs in Hannover and conclude the simulation game with a one day workshop, making use of everything they have worked out before.
Six AGEP master courses will take part in the second run of our AGEP Simulation Game, and these are:
Master Geography of Environmental Risks and Human Security, United Nations University Bonn
Master Environmental Governance, University of Freiburg
Master Engineering in Energy and Environmental Management in Developing Countries, University of Flensburg
Master SPRING, TU Dortmund
Master WATENV, University of Hannover
Master Management of Non-Profit Organizations, University of Applied Sciences Osnabrück
We are very happy to continue our AGEP Simulation Game series with this second event and hope that this format will be provided for you more often soon!
