Our small carbon footprint game has been designed to be more accessible and compact for mainstream educators. For those who cannot afford the BIG game version we’ve reduced down the size and removed the large cardboard infographic wall so you can play with just the cards.

All of our games are for those who wish to find a different way to educate about the climate crisis and carbon footprints. You could be a primary or secondary teacher, a trainer, facilitator or environmental educator at a charity.

You don’t need to have any prior knowledge of carbon footprints to play the game with others. All you need is a willingness to learn and read the ‘How Bad are Bananas?’ book as well as some facilitation experience or confidence (if you’re low on experience or confidence, our games have been shown to help facilitators develop both).

In our small games, we’ve split the cards into 2 different sets (A & B) and more sets will be released soon. You can buy just 1 set or 2 dependent on your budget. We’ve put some of our most popular card comparisons into each set.

Set A in particular is for younger audiences (it does not have age dependent references in it e.g. alcohol). With every set buy you will receive 1x user licence to access ‘The Carbon Academy’ which helps you to learn at your own pace how to confidently and effectively facilitate the game with your own players.

You will need 3 hours+ to work through The Carbon Academy although we signpost you to plenty of further reading and learning to help you be an even better game facilitator. Whilst the Carbon Academy, helps to set the scene on the climate crisis, the main focus is on helping you to become a confident and skilled facilitator of the Carbon Footprint games.

With every small game set purchased, you receive:

  • 40x durable playing cards printed on 100% recycled and recyclable board
  • 1x Higher/Lower strutted showcard so you can play upright on a table
  • 1x ‘How Bad are Bananas?’ The Carbon Footprint of Everything book (2020 edition) by Prof Mike Berners-Lee
  • 1x user licence for ‘The Carbon Academy’ to give you online support to teach you how to play with others for best effect

Delivering messages, teaching new things and trying to change behaviours is a continuous battle.

But, what if it didn’t need to be…

The Small Carbon Footprint game brings the ‘wow’ back into learning and excitement into engaging with people. The game encourages and creates a connection with your learners that far too often other learning methods ignore.

By having cards in the game that represent everyday items that everyone has consumed (food, shoes, clothes, tech, cars) learners can identify and are able to resonate with the messages the game teaches. The critical thinking learners can develop has the ability (in some of them) to provide the first gateway into the world of sustainability and climate action. Everybody leaves having learnt something new and most people are shocked by the things the game can show them and many wish to go on to act on what they’ve learnt.

The game is straightforward and easy to use and the Carbon Academy provides the facilitation training and learning necessary to play with your users straight away and we feel there is no better way for you to perfect your facilitation skills than play with learners straight away.

We want carbon literacy to be available for as many educators as possible, that’s why we’ve tried to keep the costs of the SMALL game and learning as low as we can.  We have also provided a number of ‘bundles’ to help with all budgets and ensure buyer flexibility.  

The costs are as below:

Research has shown that children can recall far better details of games they have played than most formal learning they receive. Using games as a way of learning works very effectively as they engage players in multiple different ways simultaneously.

As Kolb (1984) outlined in his theory of experiential learning, we all learn in multiple different ways (active learning, planning, theorising, reflection) and games are very good at engaging multiple learning capacities simultaneously. Marketeers know that we love receiving prizes, recognition, badges and rewards for doing (or not doing!) stuff. This trend for gamification has taken off and is now all around us!

The only way our game is different is that it’s a game NOT JUST gamified learning. By building on societies love of games, we aim to create even more intrinsic motivation for people to engage with the game than just the extrinsic motivation to collect rewards.

From the selected pack of cards, players are invited to compare 5 paired items, and in each pair guess which item has the higher carbon footprint. Sometimes it’s easy (an eco-child vs an average child) sometimes it’s pretty tricky (the papertowel vs. the hand-dryer) and sometimes it can be a very random pairing (a pair of jeans vs. 1 kg of organic, vine-grown cherry tomatoes from the UK).

The comparisons are designed to get players thinking about where items come from, what makes up their carbon footprint and encourages them to use their own experiences of the world to reach an answer. The skill is in the delivery of the facilitator, and we have ALL the support you might need (the Carbon Academy AND Carbon Literacy courses) to become a GREAT facilitator of the game.

Our original and highly eye-catching BIG carbon footprint game is the best way to start carbon conversations with anybody! It’s a carbon conversation tool, a critical thinking developer, and a fun game all delivered in an easily digestible format. The 4m wide by 3m high game wall is supported by infographics that magnetise your audience towards you for engagement! There is no escape! LOL! The large print ‘How Bad are Bananas?’ side caps intrigue some players to come and find out the answer to the question (Loughborough University students were gutted bananas might be ‘bad’! But are they?! That’d be telling!).

The BIG carbon footprint game is perfect for events, outreach work and your everyday carbon literacy education. Unlike the smaller games, the original game is difficult to miss when it pops up in different places!

Fun, eye-catching, unforgettable! This is the only behaviour changing tool that puts ‘fun’ as its main objective. Other climate learning can often create a disconnect between learning and individuals and their actions but the BIG Carbon Footprint game firmly connects actions, choices and behaviours together to empower individuals to want to make impactful choices and take action.

A giant eye-catching design, you’re not going to miss an enormous yellow game shouting ‘How Bad are Bananas?’ from the other side of the room and therefore won’t forget it or its lessons in a hurry!

We rent our BIG game to clients who have green/ environment/ climate days or events they are celebrating or promoting.

LEARNING & COMPETITIONS
We can set-up a series of workshops so you can have your staff or stakeholders trained up in groups for an hour for in-depth carbon learning. Feedback on this format so far is “we want more!”. Add in a competitive element and have a play-off of your top two teams at the end of the day. Throw in some copies of the How Bad are Bananas? books and you have ethical prizes to give away to the winners!

You will be tested in the final Chapter of the Academy to check you have retained sufficient knowledge of how to play the game.

If you’ve never facilitated before, we find that playing the game helps you to develop more facilitation skills. Playing the game becomes easier to do and better quality (in terms of learning) the more you do it. Back at Bananas HQ, we find even now that we have completely different conversations with our players and we’ve facilitated for over 6 years and have played with thousands of different people.

You can substitute other members of your team right to the last day, as long as you notify the trainer by email of this change by 8am on the day. Dietary requirements will only be able to be accommodated if we know about them 1 week in advance although we’ll do our best to feed the new person! If you’re unavailable due to unforeseen circumstances on the day and can’t make the course and have no one else you can substitute, you will be given a voucher code to join an online course within 12 months.
