A professor illustrates a simulator that helps understand climate change

July 2023

In 2020, G5 Partners implemented the G5 Talks project through which business leaders exchange experiences and learnings with the team at G5 Partners. The objective is to encourage curiosity and learning, and to widen the development of our professionals. As the project’s first encounter, held at the beginning of March, we invited Dr. Cylon Gonçalves Silva, a Professor Emeritus at Unicamp (University of Campinas). Professor Cylon is a physicist by training and one of the greatest scientific references in Brazil, with vast academic production, mainly on topics related to the magnetic and electronic properties of semi magnetic semiconductor materials and superlattices.

During the meeting, Professor Cylon addressed the global warming theme, presenting the En-Roads Simulator developed by MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), a tool available to the general public, free of charge, and which allows us to better understand and assess the relationship between economic development and its impact on the planet’s climate. It was a very interesting and enlightening conversation. “We have to change the way we live to have a more sustainable planet. Knowledge is the tool. Wisdom is knowing how to use the tool”, he stated.
