From Climate Vague to Climate Guru in 3 Hours, the Fun Way (Really)

To become a climate guru, you could read through the 5,000 page report from the UN IPCC, or you can take part in a Climate Fresk workshop, a collaborative, interactive game-based event which teaches you about the science of climate change based on that IPCC 6th assessment review.

The 2 Tonnes Workshop

Your carbon footprint as a European is probably 12 tonnes per year. Choose how you might bring it down to 2 tonnes by 2050 in this team-based simulation workshop, as well as choosing the laws to do the same for the whole country.

🕖 When: Monday June 17th at 6:30pm

🌍 Where: Islington Climate Centre, upstairs at Angel Centre near Vue Cinema entrance, in old burger bar next to Wagamama in Angel Central, 21 Parkfield Street, London N1 0PS

🚇 Transport: Angel tube & bus

🎟️ Register: on Eventbrite

🤔 It’s not quite as hilarious as the Woody Allen movie, but “Everything You Need to Know about Climate Change (but were too afraid to ask)” is a lively collaborative card-based workshop, simplifying the science with a well thought-out strategy to engage and entertain. You must layout out the concepts of climate change in sequence of cause and effect, with help from the descriptions on the cards, the pooled knowledge of the group, and the trained Fresk facilitator (if you get stuck).

🌍 Over half a million people have already participated in a Climate Fresk workshop, and the cards have been translated into 22 languages from the original French, where the game was invented.

🗓️ We plan to run irregular but reasonably frequent workshops, so register you interest by signing up to the newsletter below where we’ll announce upcoming workshops. You need to commit 3 hours on a weekday evening. We’ll provide refreshments so you don’t starve halfway through. Location will vary but it will be in the vicinity of Angel or Finsbury Park or Holloway/Camden Road.
