Global Vision Summit: Climate Action

Saturday, October 3, 2020

Join us on Saturday, October 3, from 9:00 AM- 12:00 PM for our virtual "Global Vision Summit: Envisioning Climate Solutions." This summit is free and open to any Hawaiʻi high school student. Participation is limited to the first 42 students who register.

About the Summit:

What’s the best way to solve the climate crisis? Will decreasing our reliance on fossil fuels be enough? Is planting trees an effective way to combat climate change? 

This Global Vision Summit will feature an interactive, role-playing simulation that reveals which climate solutions have the greatest impact on limiting global temperature increase.

This simulation uses En-ROADS, a computer simulator that visually represents the impact of proposed climate solutions on global temperature rise in real time.  En-ROADS has been used by the U.S. Congress, the United Nations, the Hewlett Foundation, university professors around the world, leading science educator Bill Nye, and many others.


The deadline to register is Thursday, October 1 at midnight OR until all 42 spots are taken. Register at

Participation Requirements:

* Computer or laptop (tablet or phone not recommended) with videoconferencing capability (event will be held via Zoom)
