Discover the power of game-based learning – Bring on the Game Day

game based learning

Work together to overcome challenges in a climate adaptation game

Strengthen your team by having fun through climate games. We developed Minions of Disruptions, a collaborative board game, in which you look for possible ways to tackle climate change in your organisation and community. The shared challenge unleashes dynamic interactions and collaboration with your team. It’s a perfect choice if you are looking for sustainable team building activities!

Game Day is a great way to bring people together, and get energised through play while learning about relevant climate impacts. The climate adaptation game is suitable for companies, educational institutions, public institutions, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), communities and any other interested groups. Whether you are new to climate action or already seasoned, our activities are guaranteed to give you the boost you need to keep it cool. 

During the Game Day you use gamification for climate change to:

  • Get to know important concepts that are most relevant for your organisation through game-based learning.
  • Grow your understanding for various actions against climate change.
  • Get motivated to tackle challenging issues together as a team.

STEP 2 - And Now Forward

Playing the game always results in a lot of discussion and excitement. In small groups, you present your experiences and discuss the next steps that you want to take as an organisation. How can you take climate change into consideration throughout different areas of your organisation and take these climate change adaptation examples forward? 

Check out the Minions of Disruptions™ to get a sense of the game-based learning approach!

What exactly is game-based learning or gamification for climate change?

So what do game-based learning or gamification actually mean? Game-based learning refers to educational strategies that use a game setting to help participants grasp certain concepts or apply things that they are learning. Our Game Day makes use of game-based learning that encourages the participants towards motivation, experimentation, and practicing novel ways of thinking. You may have also heard of “gamification”, which is another similar term. 

Our Game Day can be a great discussion opener to talking about climate change at your organisation. Sustainability games for employees or students make the topic easy to approach and fun to engage with, getting your team motivated to take climate action!

"To any leaders looking to inspire their teams"

“I have been looking for innovative ways to create awareness and insights among students about climate change. The Game Day offered the perfect solution: everyone played Minions of Disruptions for an afternoon and participated with full commitment. After the play, we discussed what we, as individuals and groups, can do ourselves adapting to climate change. The fun game element also made the activity much more energetic and yielded new insights.

I highly recommend this team building and experiential learning activity to any leaders looking to inspire their teams.”

Minions of Disruptions – Kenya Edition

Did you know that Minions of Disruptions has also been adapted to the needs of a pastoral community in Kenya? The purpose of this project was to explore the acceptability of a climate game as an advocacy tool in a vastly different context than what the game was originally designed for. We are proud that the project was a success and we look forward continuing this journey with our partners. Download a short project report here: Minions of Disruptions – Kenya Edition, October 2022.
