Climate Game Rules

While climate change represents a broad set of threats to all life in the planet, the project will be focusing, above all, on three main issues:

Biodiversity Conservation

Changes in our climate threaten to disrupt ecosystem balance and to bring about a mass extinction of species around the globe. This will greatly affect ecosystem services and so the habitability of our planet. For instance, mild winters and early springs can cause many plants, such as dandelions, to blossom ...

Adaptation & Mitigation

How humankind manages to confront what is coming will be critical. Throughout history, we have seen cultures that managed to adapt to harsh climatic circumstances and others for which the game ended. Just as thousands of years ago, Arabian pastoralists and agricultural communities in Mesopotamia cooperated during ...

Doughnut economics: A new model of sustainable society — from eternal growth to actual prosperity

Doughnut economics is a recent concept that has been widely discussed ever since its author, British economist Kate Raworth, introduced it in her 2017 bestselling book Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st-Century Economist. Raworth calls for a brand-new way of economic thinking — instead of a traditional neoliberal approach striving for perpetual economic growth, she introduces an alternative vision that takes both social and environmental sustainability into account. Through the metaphor of a doughnut, she shows that economics of the 21st century need to be altered to ensure people can lead a dignified life within the environmental limits of our planet.

So fresh, so clean

World leaders are turning to renewables to power societies without overpowering our planet. But as the familiar oil spills, land clearance, water pollution and air pollution associated with fossil fuels demonstrate, energy has historically come at biodiversity’s expense. So the big question is this: as we develop new, renewable energy sources, how do we ensure that they protect biodiversity?

Climate Justice is not Blind

The sole focus of climate change as a strictly environmental issue misses by large a critical social dilemma: how differently will its impacts be born upon according to who you are and to where you live. As it stands, climate impacts won't deliver blind justice.

I Came, I Mitigated, I Adapted

As it currently goes, the world by 2050 is a scary thought: rising sea levels, extreme summer heat, and mass forced migration. Yet, climate projections are inherently dependent on the steps taken to adapt to and mitigate the effects of climate change. We need to act now!

A Biodiversity Challenge

2020, the year of the COVID-19 pandemic, is also a make or break year for biodiversity. We are experiencing a sixth mass extinction. After our failures to reach previous targets, we need to act urgently to solve the crisis. Time to take on the challenge!
