KEEP COOL – Gambling with the Climate

KEEP COOL — the Climate Change Game

Does global climate politics anger you? Do you want to make a difference? In KEEP COOL you’re a “global player”. You try to advance your own economic interests, while at the same time strong lobby groups like the oil industry or environmental groups affect whether you win or lose. When it’s your turn you decide whether to collaborate in protecting the environment or do what’s best for your own interests. You risk droughts, floods and health pandemics, but could stand to benefit from prosperity and a stable global climate. The winner is the first player to achieve their aim. But, if you’re not careful, all players could lose.

The KEEP COOL board game is bilingual German/English and can be played by children and adults of 12 and above. Supervised sessions work well with younger children.

Please order the game from Spieltrieb.


A new study on KEEP COOL shows that the climate change board game can be effectively used at school. The study has appeared in the scientific journal “Climatic Change”. The Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin has published a press release on August 3, 2018.

A new KEEP COOL project has started, funded by the German Federal Environmental Foundation: KEEP COOL east. The kick-off took place at EcoVisio in Moldova in April 2018. Project partners are the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and EcoVisio.
