We facilitate Climate Fresk workshops!

On the last day of the UN Climate Change Conference #COP28, we were introduced to the Climate Fresk. An interactive workshop in which participants learn the causes and consequences of climate change and better understand what their role could be in handling the crises we face.

The workshop is based on the UN’s IPCC reports which are the most extensive meta-analyses evaluating the latest science related to climate change. Rather than reading a lengthy report of thousands of pages, participants learn through gamification, gaining an understanding of the complexity of climate change and its impacts on human systems in a mere three hours.

During the workshop, hope comes in the sense of community—we can and will get out of this state of emergency if citizens, businesses, and governments work together. The workshop promotes active citizenship, responsible business practices, and adequate government policies. Participants discuss potential measures for mitigation and adaptation, as well as the obstacles that need to be overcome for successful implementation.

We love this new way of sharing knowledge and building community! In the past two months, we have facilitated Climate Fresk to completely different audiences: one for professors and postgraduates at the Delft University of Technology (@tudelft) and another for students together with @greentu.delft. We facilitated a session within @tno.innovation with old colleagues, two sessions with 58 teens at a high school as part of their Climate Week (@Niftarlake) and another with predominantly expats at the local student hub (@rap100_leiden). Finally, we facilitated two online workshops with people from Australia, New Zealand, the USA, Canada, Italy, France, and the UK. It has been a lot of fun!

Check out our dedicated Climate Fresk page and let us know if you want to join one of our in-person or online sessions. We’ll gladly send you a link where you can subscribe to one of them!
