Moving on to Chapter 3: Embracing the Climate Emergency, gives you the basic background on the latest climate science and the current situation we find ourselves in. We will give you some facts and figures but this section is more about terminology and getting you acquainted with the most important pieces of the science and societal picture.

20min 7 Topics Incomplete

In the final part of the Carbon Academy, ‘Chapter 6: What next?’ you will be tested on what you have learnt, given further resources to access and the opportunity to download a completion certificate. You can also opt into taking part in some research into how effective using the game is at helping people to learn and change their behaviours. We’d also LOVE you to give us some feedback and evaluation on the Academy itself – this is our first but by no means our last version – we will use any of your critique to make the Carbon Academy give you what you need before you start to play. You can also access critique sheets for testing your play and our cheat sheet (facilitation notes) that can help you to quickly learn the key messages you can deliver with each playing card or comparison.
