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 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 Fresk 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 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.

Previous participants feedback

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.
