2050: A New World is a policymaking board game that requires players to develop strategies to move towards a future where climate change is mitigated. You’ll make tough decisions with limited resources, enact policies to reach your city’s 2050 sustainability goals and allocate local resources. What would you be willing to change for a sustainable, resilient life?

We will play the game in person to enable an interactive environment. The game is based in five cities, purposefully selected to represent different parts of the world with different resources at their disposal, and with different challenges to overcome. These cities are: London (UK), Dubai (United Arab Emirates), Porto Velho (Brazil), Cape Town (South Africa) and Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam). Each team of up to six players takes control of one city, and together they progress through the game.

One of the organisers will moderate the game to answer any questions raised during gameplay. This is a highly collaborative game that will require input from all team members to reach the 2050 goals. Once finished, all cities will reconvene for a brief discussion period.
