Game On! Don’t let climate change end the game!
Climate change awareness raising through gamification in eight Central and Eastern European countries

The project ‘Game On! Don’t let climate change end the game’ is an initiative of 10 organisations from eight Central and Eastern European countries to activate the global youth and react to the existential threat climate change represents for the future of humankind. The project has been made possible thanks to the co-financing of the European Development Education and Awareness Raising (DEAR) programme.
The project partners strongly believe in the energised, strong will of younger generations to push forward for the urgent systemic change required to overcome the challenges posed by climate change. Thus, the project has strived to activate this energy all across the region and the globe through a ‘gamification’ approach to initially tackle three core areas: biodiversity conservation, adaptation and mitigation, and climate justice. To do so, we have directly involved over 400 young people from Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania and Slovakia to build their capacities and become the project’s Young Climate Ambassadors. Fact-finding missions, workshops, wilderness camps, climate communications trainings and more have been at the core of the activities to enhance their skills aligned to their will to have a positive impact. Parallel to that, the project has also developed a range of products to raise awareness to the general population and become tools for the Young Climate Ambassadors to further their work.
The consortium has, thus, developed: – Climate stand-up comedy shows – The ClimateQuest, an international geocaching challenge – The Terra Futura boardgame – The ClimateGame mobile app – The Climate Compact, an e-learning platform – The EduQuest, non-formal education materials for teachers – A festival greening handbook – Museum over layering activities
