Climate Fresk Workshop (Please register)

When? November 17th, 18.00-21.00

Where? Impact Hub Zürich Viadukt

„The Climate Fresk“ is a workshop that aims to raise awareness and understanding among people about climate change. Based on the IPCC report, it explains the climate functioning and the consequences of its disruption. It gives the opportunity to learn a lot in a very short period of time and addresses both novices and experts. The workshop is based on a 42-card game. Each card represents an element, a cause, or a consequence of climate change. As a team, guided by your facilitator, you are to find the cause-effect relationship between the different components of climate change. Collective intelligence will get you from one deck of cards to the next! This step-by-step reconstruction provides keys to understanding the complexity and developing an overview of climate change.

THREE PHASES of the workshop:

– 90 ’step-by-step building up the Climate Fresk in a team (5-7 participants)

– 30 ‚creative phase: Summarize what you have learned & “acquire” the knowledge

– 60 ‚Debrief: Exchange thoughts, ideas, motivations, actions to launch!

For the face-to-face workshops, the protective measures mask + gel + spacing are implemented.

In “The Water rights” event we will have the intervention of several researchers in Switzerland, from interdisciplinary fields giving us a broad overview of the global climate change repercussions on the different water resources from glaciers to drinking water. Although we might not feel it yet, we will see that changes are already visible in Europe and of course in Switzerland.
This session will give us a good understanding of how much humanity is already impacted as well as our responsibilities and challenges in finding solutions for a sustainable and ethical world.
