Become an En-ROADS Climate Ambassador

Although anyone is welcome to participate in this training to learn more about the simulator or run an event, our En-ROADS Climate Ambassadors (ECAs) represent a distinct cohort of volunteers who are committed to mastering our tools and spreading data-driven climate insights across the globe.

Becoming an En-ROADS Climate Ambassador takes significant preparation, and we only encourage applications from individuals who have worked through the training program and started leading En-ROADS events. Applications are free to all and we welcome individuals from all backgrounds and disciplines globally. 
"I enjoy getting people to think differently about the possibility of limiting global warming after the event – providing them with hope that the 'doomsday scenario' is not inevitable."
– Tony Green, ECA (Livermore CA, USA)
"I love the element of curiosity and the possibility to go deeper when necessary, the flexibility it provides to the facilitator to be creative and adapt according to the audience."
– Pinar Oncel, ECA (Istanbul, Turkey)
"En-ROADS is a tool that empowered me to learn and do something about climate change. I was also able to empower others in this journey to join the team and start doing something about this huge problem we are dealing with."
– Pablo Lucangeli, ECA (Buenos Aires, Argentina)

Frequently asked questions

What is En-ROADS?

En-ROADS is a fast, powerful climate simulation tool for understanding how we can achieve our climate goals through changes in energy, land use, consumption, agriculture, and other policies. It gives everyone the chance to design their own scenarios to limit future global warming. The simulator was built by Climate Interactive, MIT Sloan School of Management, and Ventana Systems. En-ROADS runs online, is carefully grounded in the best available science, and is calibrated against a wide range of existing integrated assessment climate and energy models.

Is there a fee for the course?

No, the training course, the En-ROADS simulator, and all the Climate Interactive tools and resources are free to all, thanks to the generous support of our funders. If you would like to contribute, we welcome you to donate here: https://secure.donationpay.org/climateinteractive/.

Can my friend/sister/cousin/students join the course?

Yes! Anyone is welcome to join, just share the link learn.climateinteractive.org with them. 

When does the course start? Is there a deadline to finish it?

The En-ROADS Climate Ambassador Camp starts on May 16, 2022 and runs for 8 weeks. Each week we will release the content of a new module. After the 8 week training, and once you have run two practice events, you can apply to become an Ambassador.

When are the weekly live meetups?

Each Thursday beginning May 19, we offer a live session on Zoom where you'll get to meet others from around the world, explore topics in-depth, and practice your growing skills in a fun and supportive environment. We offer them at two different times: 9am EDT (UTC-4) and 3pm EDT (UTC-4). You'll receive more information by email about how to sign up for the time that works for you. The live sessions are optional and are not necessary to complete the course, but they are a highlight of the course for many!

How much time should I plan to spend on the course each week?

It's up to you! A good estimate would be 3-4 hours per week.
