Event description

Description

Can you help solve the Climate Crisis? In this game players take part as teams representing nations, global corporations and the United Nations. The aim of the game is to bring predicted climate change to 2 degrees or lowerl. Nations must also consider their economy and the geo-political situation, while corporations must bear in mind the concerns of their shareholders.

If you enjoy Risk or other strategic boardgames, or you want to practice your negotiation skills, or you just want to be president or prime minister for a day (well, an afternoon) then come along and play.

The game has a serious intent as well. By playing you will gain insight into the difficulties of climate change negotiations and policy-making.
