For His Holiness the Dalai Lama, MIT Sloan Professor John Sterman creates a climate success scenario using the C-ROADS simulation of Climate Interactive.
The Dalai Lama and John Sterman were joined by Prof. Rebecca Henderson and Prof. Marshall Ganz at this event.
At one point, to illustrate the importance of direct, nonviolent action, the Dalai Lama spoke of his experience in India with a movement to protect human rights, recalling that he told the organizers “This is a serious matter. So if you decide to organize such things [demonstrations and mass collective action to demand change] then I will join, shouting, shouting. I will go there, really. This is not for selfish reasons, but for the well-being of human beings, of humanity.”
The presentation and remarks happened at a 31 October 2014 event at MIT with the Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values.
The simulation is available for free use at climateinteractive.org, called "C-Learn" under the list of Tools.
