Why are so many organisations booking the Climate Fresk 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 improve efficiency. 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 actions 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 Fresk has gamified it. In the workshop, teams build a collage centered on the cause-and-effect relationships in climate change. It’s a fast-paced and fun workshop and by collaborating, 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 Fresk 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 Fresk?

Climate Fresk is a card game, and the brainchild of Cédric Ringenbach. Now a worldwide organisation, the aim of Climate Fresk 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 Assessment Report.

Who is the Climate Fresk for?

The Climate Fresk is designed for anyone (including children!) who wants to or needs to engage with climate change and the science behind it.  For companies seeking to engage their teams and employees, it’s an incredibly powerful workshop to bring people together to learn, test their knowledge and assumptions, and come out with new skills and a new awareness of our planet’s health.

All workshops run for at least 3 hours, with up to 100 participants. They can be run online (max 6 participants/facilitator) using Zoom and Mural, or in-person (max 14 participants/facilitator).

Workshops include:

→ Kick-off meeting to tailor requirements

→ The Climate Fresk card game

→ Post-workshop debriefing with all participants

→ A PDF output with resources and an evaluation form

When looking for an interactive and instructional way to explain the causes and effects of climate change, and how running our business impacts that, we quickly found the Climate Fresk to be the best available tool.

Andreia and her team have been instrumental in facilitating those workshops in a professional and pedagogic manner, answering questions with patience and facts, and connecting our own operations to the bigger picture.

Our teams got out with a better understanding of the challenges ahead and actionable proposals to reduce our company’s footprint.

A word from the founder

Climate Fresk i Göteborg

Hello, 👋🏼 my name is Andreia Olaru. For many years, I’ve been working with organisations, entrepreneurs and creatives to build businesses of their dreams. I live and breathe strategy, and I’ve helped tens of business owners to clarify and refine their services.

When working with me, I am becoming your strategic partner in helping to get your teams and your colleagues on board with your environmental and sustainability awareness policies. I am a fully trained and experienced facilitator, and I will create a safe container for your esteemed colleagues to learn, to share, and to grow both as professionals, and as human beings.

Our team of professional facilitators, with many years of experience in the sustainability and climate sector, is delivering workshops to groups from 15 to hundreds of participants. The workshop experiences are available in Swedish or English.

We provide a multitude of gamified workshop experiences to accommodate many sectors: Textiles Untangled, Digital Collage, Biodiversity Collage, Circular Economy Fresco and many more.

Our participants’ feedback

Very well presented, and very informative. Every company should inform their employees and provide them with vital information like this.

— workshop participant, August 2021

Creating the collage was really interesting and interactive – a great way to learn so much and it encouraged interaction and participation. I found it very inspiring and important as climate change can often feel so big and overwhelming. The action graph activity at the end was a great way to finish and made me think about actions I could implement in my own community. Andreia was good at including everyone in the group and ensuring we all had an opportunity to share.

— workshop participant, October 2022

I loved this workshop! It was incredibly informative and engaging, and I really felt the facilitator’s energy for this subject. While it was a lot to take in, it was also enjoyable because the pace was really good – the facilitator made sure we were relaxed and didn’t get overwhelmed with the facts! I also found the last part, the wrap-up, totally uplifting.

— workshop participant, April 2021

Andreia uses very clear & powerful language to take us through complex problems. She left me feeling empowered to do more instead of feeling overwhelmed.

— workshop participant, August 2021

The workshop went well, it was informative and well presented. The game moderation was well done and I appreciated the interventions and explanations of Andreia.

— workshop participant, June 2021

Both the workshop and the facilitator did a wonderful job in explaining the climate collage! It was interesting to see the interconnectivity of all the drivers, the effects, consequences, etc. Seeing the whole picture/collage was an eye-opener!

— workshop participant, April 2021

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

I learned a lot about the knock-on effects of climate change, particularly about its effect on marine life and ecosystems.

— workshop participant, June 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.

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

The workshop was very nice. Andreia managed to successfully keep the conversation interesting, sparked our interest, and offered a lot of information on the topic.

— workshop participant, April 2021

Great time management and great energy throughout the workshop.
