As we find ourselves in the midst of the “decade of disruption” many global systems are becoming more vulnerable and volatile. Key systems such as food and energy, as well as key stakeholders such as businesses, organizations, and communities, will need to be more resilient and better equipped to understand and act in the face of a rapidly changing external landscape. There is a need for the climate funding community to develop and deliver climate investment plans with a wider view of the future.
To meet this need, ClimateWorks and Forum for the Future partnered to develop future trajectories – potential pathways to the future based on mindsets and signals of change in the world. These trajectories help us understand risks and opportunities out to 2028 with an aim to enable better decision-making. The trajectories also deep dive into two critical issues – global food prices and transition minerals, as both are areas likely to cause large-scale impact.
Our updated trajectories explored the macro trends underpinning shocks across the globe and gave way to potential pathways for food prices and transition minerals based on mindsets and signals of change in the world. We used the trajectories and research to explore the implications for the climate funding community. In order to explore them in a highly interactive and creative way, the game enabled us to explore responses to the two critical issues within different mindsets.
We invite you to step into the future and play a fast-paced immersive game entitled “Shocks to the System: Fast Forward to 2028”. This game is a 30 – 40 min cooperative game for 2-5 people about time travellers making decisions that will determine the trajectory of the future.
Developed by ClimateWorks and Forum for the Future, the game will test your ability to make decisions around critical issues such as transition minerals, food prices, and other macro trends, as they pertain to climate funding.
