Climate game

Chalmers climate game at Researchers’ Night in Gothenburg 2007

This game aims to teach participants more about the climate and climate issues. Visitors can, for example, find out how “climate smart” they are. Chalmers University of Technology has developed a hands-on climate game where visitors assemble squares that symbolise carbon emissions in a shopping basket based on how they answer questions about their habits. The game has been used during Researchers’ Night events. Other similar games with a climate theme can of course be developed.

Target group: Suitable for most people.

Preparations: Find people to run the game and decide on a venue and time. Organise the necessary materials. Market the activity.

Challenges: Getting people to stop and play.

Benefits: A simple and attractive way to provide information about a highly topical and socially relevant topic.
