After participating in "Serious Games" with the ISAGA SIG (International Simulation and Gaming Association, SIG Special Interest Group on Sustainability and Environment) I've added a few game innovations to the EnRoads Climate Action Simulation Game I'm regularly facilitating on zoom:
*A newsfeed/(similar to a "gamemaster") which interjects real time world events, secret messages and climate tipping points into the game.
*A countdown timeclock
*Players are challenged to identify and seek solutions to perceived OBSTACLES which prevent world governments from taking climate action.
*Multi-solving solutions are given "people's leverage points (because health benefits etc., will create popular support)" which, if enough are gained, allow a government to take climate action and still stay in office (despite the backlash to their climate actions.)
Thanks for sharing these enhancements to the Climate Action Simulation, Karen!
