Engaging with Climate Science Strategically

Why are so many organisations booking the Climate Collage workshop?

Who is holding all the cards?

Smart businesses know that climate awareness is important. Companies with better environmental, social and governance (ESG) ratings had better returns in almost every month of 2020.

Integrating sustainability is good for business: not just in terms of risk management and resilience, but it can also support business growth, improve efficiency and drive profit. Understanding climate change and climate resilience is crucial to organisations in today’s world, and engaging your team in this as you uplevel your sustainability storytelling is a major asset.

Embedding environmental awareness throughout your organisation is better for staff engagement, better for your ESG, and better for the planet.

Understanding climate science is not easy, but now the Climate Collage has gamified it. In the workshop, teams work together to build a collage centered on the cause and effect relationships in climate change. It’s a fast-paced and fun workshop and by collaborating together, individuals can test climate knowledge and assumptions in a safe environment, while also practicing communication and leadership skills.

Working in small groups, participants proceed through several rounds learning about the causes and effects of climate change and what we can do about it. It’s a highly interactive, engaging and thought-provoking workshop, designed to foster collaboration and teamwork.

The Climate Collage is innovative, engaging and accessible. This creates a basis for trust, knowledge sharing and learning. The future is in our hands, and truly understanding and engaging with that is why the game is so successful. That’s why we say that you are holding all the cards.

What is the Climate Collage?

Climate Collage is a card game, and the brainchild of Cedric Rigenbach. Now a worldwide organisation, the aim of Climate Collage is to bridge a gap in making climate science more accessible to citizens around the world. The cards are based on data from the UN’s climate scientists, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’s most recent 5th Assessment Report.

Previous participants feedback

The facilitator was really well prepared in terms of information and arguments for all the steps of the game. Also, I think the time has been well managed. I loved the emotion wheel part and debriefing/feedback at the end.

— workshop participant, February 2021

Andreia was patient in explaining to us what to do, she was knowledgeable about the information on the cards and knew how to explain that simple and clear. She made the workshop seem fun and interactive, more than even the card games provided.

— workshop participant, February 2021

Andreia run the climate collage workshop with a great positive attitude. The structure of the collage itself is a much-needed tool to develop awareness about the causes and effects of climate change.

— workshop participant, March 2021

The workshop was a very sensitive and supportive experience.

— workshop participant, March 2021

I enjoyed Andreia’s engaging energy and the positivity with which she delivered even such a difficult topic to digest as climate change. The workshop is informative and fun and super useful to open our mind’s eye and allow it to remain open and pensive about this topic.

— workshop participant, February 2021

Good presence, good facilitation, great energy.
