Our technology will change rapidly as the transition to renewable energy, electric vehicles and responsible farming accelerates. Game developers would do well to keep in mind which technologies now symbolize the old world and which belong in the new, find opportunities to portray new ways of generating energy, farming land and traveling, while relegating the old to depictions of just that – the old world.
WHY IT MATTERS
DO’S & DON’TS
Not Just Climate
Remember that you can press the co-benefits and not just climate restoration. Maybe in your game it makes more sense to simulate or talk about how burning fossil fuels kill millions through air pollution each year, the health benefits of cycling or eating vegetarian, or how electric vehicles and renewable energy are simply better, more efficient products than their fossil fuel counterparts.
