Play and the Environment: Games Imagining the Future

17th March 13:00 to 16:00
This workshop is part of a research project with the Manchester Metropolitan Game Centre. Hack board games to explore climate change.

The research project, Play and the Environment, investigates how board games can support understanding of the climate crisis and evaluates games as a tool through which we can explore and share ideas about the climate crisis.

This workshop involves you in the project and gives you an opportunity to explore your ideas about climate change, the environment, and system change, by playing and making board games. You will have the opportunity to take part in playful and creative thinking exercises, meet new people, and contribute your voice to this vital debate.

Play and the Environment (a research project funded by the Libellund Foundation and Game in Lab) is led by Chloé Germaine and Paul Wake, with support from Benjamin Bowman. You can see a video of their game-hacking methodology (presented at the Ecogames symposium at the University of Utrecht in October 2021) here:
