About Climate Interactive

Climate Interactive is rooted in the fields of system dynamics modeling and systems thinking. Through this lens, and with our colleagues at the MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative, we create and share tools that help people see connections and drive effective and equitable climate action. Climate Interactive hosts a team of system dynamics modelers who create user-friendly climate simulators—spanning topics of international policy, cutting-edge climate solutions, energy dynamics, climate justice, and more. We then amplify the insights from these tools through interactive workshops, role-playing games, and events led by our team and an international network of trained facilitators. From start to finish, Climate Interactive’s aim is to synthesize technical climate science into accessible mediums, and harness the power of experiential learning to engage and inform people around high-leverage, equitable climate solutions.

Our team is working hard to be a leading voice in sustainable business and policy, with a mission to provide the best education, apply academic rigor to real world problems, and empower leaders everywhere to take action so humans and nature can thrive. Housed at the MIT Sloan School of Management – birthplace of systems thinking, system dynamics, and modeling of complex human + environment interactions – we are deeply committed to advancing systems change for an equitable and sustainable world.
