These four games will teach how we can tackle climate change

For both kids and adults, games are sometimes a great way to learn about social issues and brainstorm creative solutions. The nonprofit Games for Change has worked on this idea for more than a decade, and at its annual festival in New York, it presented four new games that tackle the most pressing challenge for humanity: climate change.

“Games can help inspire curiosity, optimism, and problem-solving, all of which are crucial elements in the collective impact to address climate change. Through games, people can explore potential climate changed futures. Games are also used by organizations like the military to help people evaluate and make decisions regarding complex material,” says Stephanie Pfirman, a researcher who leads the PoLAR Climate Change Education Partnership.
