23.11.2009                Background & Motivation

             Climate Change is an increasingly important topic,
              also for business school students.
             Teaching reform at University of St. Gallen
              (Bologna) leads us to looking for new courses in the
              area of Corporate Sustainability.
             Role Plays / Simulation as interactive, rewarding
              form of learning.
             Opportunity for CEMS Faculty Group to take yet
              another lead in innovative teaching for
              sustainability.
             Course was rolled out at University St. Gallen and
              ESADE in Feb. 09.
             Targeted to attract students with different business
              backgrounds.

23.11.2009                         Course Design

             Course should be fully intergated in CEMS-MIM curriculum as well as
              curriculum of 3-5 CEMS partner schools.
             Course consists of four modules:
                  • Modules 1 & 2 two focused on classroom-based learning via
                     lectures, discussion, and in-class exercises.
                  • Modules 3 & 4 focused on preparation for the role play and the
                     role play itself in Barcelona, Spain.
             20-30 students from each participating CEMS school.
             i.e. 60-150 students overall.

             In Week 5, Students are assigned certain roles (e.g. EU, US, Uganda,
              Low-Lying Island States, China, Russia, NGOs Automotive Lobby, etc.)
             Students were trained in Negotiation Skills
             Prior to the Role Play, all students gave
                • „Background Presentations“ on Geographie, Economy, & Politics of
                  their country
                • and prepared „Position Papers“ including Mitigation Targets, the
                  future of the CDM, and adaptation funding.
             During the 2-day Negotiation Simulation in Barcelona, teams of 4-5
              students represented one important actor in global climate policy.
             Negotiations were passionate and sometimes frustrating for the students.
             Voting rules reflect UNFCCC rules
             Students agreed on a comparably weak resolution.
