In 2011, Paris school of Economics ("Science Po Paris") staged a impressive reenactment of the 2009 climate conference in Copenhagen. Students played the role of negotiators after 6 months of preparation. Over 200 people took part; the whole school was shut off so that the event could take place. The initiative was triggered by a group of scientists. Their goal: trying to understand how and why climate talks fail. After 2 days of talks, the conference stalls. Students cannot fulfill the climate equation. Are they going to finally come to an agreement? Can students find different path for negotiations? Will fiction overcome reality?
