Climate Fresk

What is it?
The IPCC is the scientific group assembled by the United Nations to monitor and assess all the science related to climate change. The IPCC publishes assessment reports which are used as global references on the current state of our Environment. Each report takes about five to seven years to complete, involving hundreds of scientists reviewing the work of thousands more experts.
For an inexperienced or untrained audience, based on IPCC reports, the Climate Fresk is the reference collaborative workshop to collectively understand the implications of climate change, and trigger action against it.
You don’t have time to read the 2000 pages of the IPCC report?
In 3 hours, the collaborative workshop The Climate Fresk allows you and your team to understand the essential issues of climate change in order to take action.
The workshop lasts approximately 3 hours and is structured in 3 phases.

How do we play?

The game consists of collectively constructing a mural by linking the 42 cards of the game according to the cause-and-consequence relationships as presented by the IPCC in its various reports.

In the first phase, you and your team must complete a mural, that explains the causes and consequences of climate change, in a logical teamworking way, while learning about every hidden aspect.

The second phase is artistic: the participants decorate the mural by letting their imagination run wild!

The last phase consists of a debriefing allowing each participant to express his/her feelings and to discuss individual or collective solutions to be implemented to fight against climate change.
