Geography 135: Climate Summit

Catherine Gautier, Uniersity of California, Santa Barbara

This resource is a role-playing geography course at UC-Santa Barbara. In this cooperative learning exercise students are challenged to assume the roles of nations and organizations in order to discuss and debate the state of the global climate. The course is designed to be a total "immersion" into the process (presentations, discussions and negotiations) and atmosphere of an environmental summit. Also included are writing and reading assignments, lecture notes, and links to relevant sites.
