We need to invoke a positive change in mindset and culture because we have become so wasteful and disconnected from nature. We need to realise that humans are not separate from nature - we are nature. By damaging nature, we are damaging ourselves. Video games can provide a platform to educate and encourage positive change and most importantly climate action.

It really needs to be at a national and governmental level across all industries. First step would be to rejoin the Paris Climate Change Agreement that Trump decided to leave. 🤦

Government need to implement better national policies and higher carbon tax to help make substantial progress !

I think this should be rephrased to: how can we gamify the action of reducing carbon emissions. Giving instant rewards for positive actions, whether that is through education or everyday purchases could more successfully trigger people
to want to make a change.

Education systems should normalise and practice problem-solving for sustainability from a young age.

Imperial College have recently created the game Ecobuilder which looks into this. It allows people to solve real-world ecological puzzles and build biodiverse ecosystems. This sort of engagement makes learning fun and the topic of sustainability less of a burden.

Congratulations on this - the research you have done is so thorough and comprehensive! The visuals also make the information so much more digestible compared to standard research reports.  

 

At one point you mention Citizen Science and I think this is interesting to explore further in our specialism and in innovation fields, especially in the idea of combining expert and public viewpoint. I think the book 'Superforecasting: the art and science and prediction' also examines this a little.

Some projects here in this article I
think signify this power of collaboration:

Linking back to your 'jobs of the future' chapter I think we all need to become better and more proactive at making speculative future concepts real, other than just making predictions or observation.
