Due to demand we're adding another date on Sunday 21!

Want to help tackle climate change but don’t have the time to become a climate scientist?

For the San Francisco Climate Week, we are organizing Climate Fresk in a large room, so please come and bring friends!

Climate Fresk is fun, participative yet 100% science-based serious game about climate 🌍 🌱. In just 3 hours, the collaborative Climate Fresk workshop will teach you the fundamental science behind climate change and empower you to take action and/or understand the kind of policies we would need to address and adapt to it.

« Climate Fresk » is a workshop created in France that aims to raise people's awareness and understanding about climate change. Based on the IPCC report, explains the causes and consequences of climate change. It allows learning a lot in a very short period and is meant for both novices and experts.

NPR piece on the Climate Fresk
NY Times article: "For a trendy night out in Paris, how about a climate change workshop?"

How the game works
The workshop is based on a 42-card game. Each card represents a cause or a consequence of climate change. As a team, guided by your facilitator, you are to find the cause-effect relationship between the different components of climate change. Collective intelligence will get you from one deck of card to the next! This step-by-step reconstruction provides keys to understanding the complexity of climate change.
