Playing with Climate Futures
Solidarity creates playful ways to interact with Britain’s possible futures as imagined by a young climate activist. Based on a series of collaborative game design sessions, the board game aims to generate hope through collective action in a time of uncertainty. Set in 2040s Britain, players are given a character who has become dissatisfied by suburban sprawl, filled with carbon-copy houses, the ruins of community buildings from the past, police and climate disasters. The game follows these characters as they try to overcome the social isolation of suburbia by exploring beyond their neighbourhood and building a social movement that fights for climate justice.
