Informal, interactive, playful activities that help to facilitate understanding of climate and climate change and climate data records – with an accompanying Facilitator Guide.
Three playful games were developed by the Climate Change Initiative programme to support its educational activities and contribute to the international efforts in increasing the awareness of the general public on climate change.
The games are independent of each other and can, therefore, be played separately. However, by playing the games in a chain, the emotional and societal awareness of participants to key aspects of the Climate Change Initiative programme and activities can be amplified.
The three games are:
- Monitoring game; play this game to experience the complexities and difficulties of monitoring many variables at once. How many observed variables can you remember?
- Albedo game; play this game to see how changing albedo can influence the rate of melting sea ice under different climate change scenarios.
- Biodiversity and habitat game; play this game to mimic the reality of complex (but necessary!) interactions between species and habitats. How many species can you or your team connect to?
