Climate Fresk (formerly Climate Collage)

By turning UN science reports (IPCC 6th assessment report) into a game, it makes climate change more accessible. Now played by more than 400,000 people worldwide, be part of a movement of people raising their climate literacy.
With Many Roots delivers these interactive workshops to teams and groups to help people process systems change in a safe, non-judgemental space. We use imaginative cards in order to learn the drivers, mechanisms and consequences of climate change. There are five rounds of engaging with the cards and the concepts, then the game is followed by a debrief and discussion about next steps. The whole process can be tailored to your specific group or team.

Fantastic workshop packed full of information, ideas and facts, but presented in a really engaging way. I’ve learned a lot and feel very inspired to step up to take action.

The session did an excellent job of bringing everyone up to speed on climate science and will provide a foundation for how we cover the climate crisis as a local newspaper in 2021 and beyond.
The Bristol Cable
Approaching the interconnectedness of climate change cause & effect with both science as well as addressing emotions leaves me empowered to drive a positive change through my work and personal life. The team was enthusiastic and added momentum to our action planning.

It was great that the facilitator kept checking in to see how we were all doing. The explanations were really clear and it was brilliant.

FAQs for Climate Fresk workshop

What data is the workshop based on?

The data used in the workshop is based on the UN’s IPCC’s 6th Assessment report, which was published in 2021. It is a synthesis and “provides an overview of the state of knowledge concerning the science of climate change.” Here’s the original source, AR6 SYR.

Why is the group size quite small?

Climate Fresk is a group collaborative activity, and being online means that several cursors are moving around the screen – with plenty of opportunity for other distractions. Engagement is required throughout the workshop and to balance everyone’s needs, 6 is the optimum size,  or occasionally 8. If you’d like more of your team to play, we can arrange simultaneous sessions with 2 facilitators. 

Face to face group sizes can be up to 8 and 1 facilitator can run up to 3 teams at one time.

Can the workshop be changed?

No. The workshop itself is under copyright and cannot be altered without permission. The game is played in accordance with the science. However, the debrief can be tailored to suit the needs of the group, particularly for internal teams, who, after such a powerful shared experience, are often motivated to make real systemic impact. 

Why is 10% of your profit donated to charity?

Since 2017, With Many Roots has donated 10% of its profit to charity, using effective altruism principles. We believe it’s our responsibility to distribute our success. Did you know the average salary in the UK in 2019 (£30,000/year in 1 household) equates to being in the top 2.1% richest population in the world? Find out where last year’s 10% went. We even made it into the national newspaper!

Do you run workshops face to face?

Yes. We offer workshops both in person and online. We can adapt to your organisation’s needs. We work with a pool of emphatically-trained facilitators across many locations. We are well practiced at online delivery techniques that make the workshop engaging in the digital space as this was our primary mode of delivery during the pandemic.

Face to face group sizes can be up to 8 and 1 facilitator can run up to 3 teams at one time.

Can the workshop be shorter?

No. Climate science is complex and challenging: it’s important we take our time so every participant can engage with and process the information. Given the wide scale transformational change the UN calls for, we think 3 hours is an acceptable amount of time to begin to understand the concepts involved. 

Workshops can be extended for groups wanting a slower pace and to have a longer, more in depth debrief.

Can I become a Climate Fresk facilitator?

Yes absolutely. But first you need to participate in a Climate Fresk workshop. Once every two months With Many Roots runs training workshops for individuals. For organisations, employees can be trained to roll out the workshop across the organisation. Find out more here.

Why am I paying for staff physio, wellbeing and learning?

We’re demanding our team to be at their desk and emotionally present during each workshop, to hold a safe space while others engage (often for the first time) with just how complex and connected the climate crisis is. This work is intellectually, posturally and emotionally demanding. We think it’s fair to look after the needs of our team, so that means paying for processes to continue their learning; physiotherapy and similar to maintain a healthy body;  and counselling or mentoring to build resilience and maintain emotional health. We believe all this will contribute to higher quality workshops for you. Often in other companies’ prices these are embedded costs: With Many Roots prefers to be accountable and to let you know where your money is going.
