Keep Cool - MPM students simulate climate negotiations with Falko Ueckerdt (PIK)

As a preparation for the forthcoming Study Tour to Bonn and Brussels in March, the MPM students spent a day dealing with the topic of climate change on Monday, February 10 2014. Falko Ueckerdt of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) introduced them to the main physical and political concepts surrounding global warming and climate protection.

Applying these insights practically the students engaged in vivid discussions and negotiations when playing
"Keep Cool" - a strategy game simulating climate change negotiations. Participants represent different countries who try to realize their economic and political goals whilst tackling climate change cooperatively.
