Clim@venture 1.5: Our European digital peer-exchange project
Together with our Swedish (@ChangemakerAb), German (@energieagenturebem) and Austrian (Forum VIA – @forumvia) partners, we are designing a virtual exchange experience between students who want to do something for the climate starting from the place where they live. #microadventures #storytelling
Our international team will help the participating students to look at their surroundings through the lens of sustainability and to exchange stories with peers from other European countries. The goal of the clim@venture project is to offer students interactive climate education- and storytelling tools so that they can continue to build a sustainable future in the best possible way. Ultimately the goal is to create a project that can be reproduced in all European schools!
The clim@venture project is co-financed by the Erasmus+ program
“World Climate” is a role-play game that simulates a UNFCCC climate summit. It allows groups of 15 to 80 people to experience the implications of the UN climate negotiations, to get a better feeling for the challenges associated with climate change and explore the measures needed to tackle it in time.

Forum ViA has been hosting the simulation game at universities and schools in Austria since 2015. We also adapted the game to include connections to concrete climate actions thus highlighting what participants can do to fight climate change.
