Cards Against Climate Change needs you — make your own card!
It’s been 4 years since that strong cup of joe sparked a climate change version of the popular game, Cards Against Humanity.
A lot of things have changed since then. We’ve seen the normalization of public environmental debate, the rise of Extinction rebellion and similar groups, and of course, the poster child of climate activism, Greta Thunberg.
It seems only right to update the cards to fit the current climate.
Introducing: Cards against climate change — 2019 edition!
In support of COP 25, I want to make an updated version that you can play at marches or other events.
Not sure what Cards Against Humanity is? Read the 2015 post below for a quick introduction.
BUT!! These cards don’t write themselves.
Keeping with the spirit of the first 2 versions, and Cards Against Humanity’s open approach to making your own cards, this should be a collaboration.
That means you!
What do you think should be on the cards?
Who made an impact? What ecosystems can we make fun of? What controversial tools should we use against climate change?
To have enough time to make the cards and print them, let’s get all the suggestions in by the 17th. That gives us 10 days to be creative, and 2 weeks to print and distribute the cards.
What should be in the 2019 edition? Comment below to get your card in the new deck!
I can’t wait to read your suggestions!
(Original 2015 post below):
I made my coffee WAY too potent yesterday, resulting in a crazy idea I had to try out.
High on caffeine, I thought it could be fun to make a Cards Against Humanity game, that you could bring to a climate march.
You can even play with people in other countries by sending them pictures.
It became a day-long project (before and after regular work hours), but the 1st version was done and up before I went to bed that night which, granted, was late due to the coffee.
Click the big, tasty button below, and get the 2nd version — now with even more cards, for added fun!
The cards are non-profit and are not a part of the original Cards Against Humanity series.
You can play it in combination with the original game, giving you such joyous results as:
‘In a surprising move, Bjørn Lomborg now advocates The Holocaust.’
Really, how can you not download them?
The cards are thought up by the joint effort and creative minds of me and these amazing people: Thank you; Yan, Helle, Mikkel, Niels, Charlotte, Nicholas, Sievers, Carsten, Dion, and McFadden.
So print them, and bring them to a climate march, or another COP21 event, near you!
Remember, you can play it with people around the globe who are also attending a climate march, by tweeting a picture of your card with #CAH_ClimateChange.
If you have a suggestion for cards, put them in the comments, or shoot me an e-mail.
