Why play Climate Fresk?
- Because you wish to provide quality climate education to a group of people in a playful and collaborative way.
- Because this game is a great starting point towards regenerative leadership and recognizing how individual and collective actions can make a difference.
- Because workshop participants understand the fundamental science behind climate change and gain a reinforced sense of purpose.
How does it work?
The workshop is based on a card game that distills the essence of the scientific IPCC reports in an understandable and digestible manner. Participants are guided through a process of discovery and learn how they can take action. The workshop is accessible to anyone, it can be held virtually or in person and it can be scaled quickly within an organization.
Participants gather around tables in teams of 4 to 7 people. They discover cards representing the different components of climate change and work together to connect them in order to highlight the links between cause and effect. A Fresker guides them using a collective intelligence approach. The Fresker then facilitates an exchange to debrief and explore individual and collective solutions and to broaden reflections beyond climate issues.
What do you learn?
The objective of the session is to understand the complexity of climate change, to realize the implications it has for life on Earth and most importantly, to come up with actions each and every one of us can take for the preservation of our beautiful planet. In just three hours, participants understand the fundamental science behind climate change.
Who is it for?
It is suitable for all audiences and all levels of understanding. It addresses both novices and the more aware, who wish to deepen their knowledge on climate issues. More than 1,000,000 participants in 66 countries have played the Climate Fresk so far! Do you want to be next?
“How does global warming work? The first option to turn to for the answer: Read the IPCC report. Result guaranteed, but 2000 pages to go through! Second option: play the Climate Fresk. The game helps people understand the main mechanisms at work in this highly complex issue.”
