What is the climate collage ?
The Climate Collage is a French non-profit organisation, on a mission to raise awareness about climate change and train 1 MILLION people on the fundamentals of climate science, with a fun and collaborative workshop.
The Climate Collage association proposes a scientific workshop based on 42 cards resulting from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s work which allows to raise awareness of climate regulation in a playful and collaborative way.
Understanding the issue leads to action and acceptance of change
Faced with the climate emergency, we believe that everyone needs to be trained on the basics of climate science, in order to understand the situation, collectively accept the structural changes that need to be made, and start taking effective action.
Participants gather around a table in teams of 4 to 8. They discover 42 cards representing the different components of climate change and collaboratively work to identify cause and effect relationships, under the supervision of a trained facilitator to guide them, provide additional insights and ensure smooth communication.
