The COP21 Climate Games are over, long live the Climate Games! After over a year of work by dedicated artists, activists, coders, developers, gamers, designers, writers, translators, performers, money launderers and many more, the Climate Games managed to live up to its claim: the world’s largest Disobedient Action Adventure Game.
Over 14 days (29th December – 12th December 2015) whilst the the UN summit played with words 214 actions by 124 teams took place from Portugal to Paris, New York to Melbourne, Brittany to Switzerland. The Games demonstrated how disobedience is the mother of creativity within the Climate Justice movements. Check out the Awards pages to see some of the great actions and the wrap up video.

The world’s largest Disobedient Action Adventure Game
It’s December 2015. You have a heart filled with courage, a mobile phone and plans for creative mischief. Your team is ready to merge street and online disobedience. The COP21 UN climate summit is just opening in Paris. Manifestations of ‘the Mesh’ — austerity-dictating politicians, fossil fuel corporations, industry lobbyists, peddlers of false solutions and greenwashers – are converging to solve the climate catastrophe. Or so they tell us.
We are not convinced.
Your objective is to join the global movements swarming to shift the game against profit and in favour of life.
The Climate Games are where action-adventure meets actual change. Anyone can play this real-time, real-world game and turn Paris and the world into a giant, direct action playing field for climate justice. We have everything to play for – but time is running out.
