TAKE THE CHALLENGE: CLIMATE CHANGE

Scientists have been documenting clear signs of a warming planet: the highest amounts of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, the highest global surface and sea surface temperatures on record, extremes rain and snow amounts, and rising sea levels. Every city is experiencing unique impacts of climate change.

Research how your city will be affected by climate change in the next 20-30 years, and make a game that teaches citizens how to prepare for our climate future.
