Carbon trading game night! Join us on Sept. 19 for an interactive Emissions Trading System (ETS) simulation by the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF). Using the EDF CarbonSim tool, this session will help students gain valuable ETS experience in a risk-free, entertaining, and fast-paced learning environment.

The simulation highlights choices, provides a framework for decisions, and serves as a platform for experiments in emissions trading scenarios. Through the simulation, participants will learn how they can use an ETS to achieve environmental and economic outcomes, develop a carbon portfolio management strategy, minimize liabilities and capitalize on opportunities. They will also come to understand that choices made by both policymakers and industries are shaped by the design and administration of the ETS.
