Climate change is a top ten favourite topic in most media we come across every day. But only some aspects are usually discussed: why, how and what is going to happen next. What if we now start considering climate change in a more complex and multifaceted way? What if we look at it as a result of social dynamics, economic issues, effects on human health, impacts on agriculture and forest and many other criteria with the help of new scientific methods?
The CIRCE Integrated Project, funded under the European Commission’s Sixth Framework Programme, aimed to reach these objectives, highlighting impacts and possible adaptation actions of the climate change in the Mediterranean region, which includes Europe, North Africa and Middle East. The outcomes of the project (scientific facts and evidences) have been used to produce the cards of a participatory game.“MedClimateChange-CIRCE PlayDecide”, aiming to discuss issues regarding climate change and to involve all the participants in a fruitful debate sharing ideas on how to deal with the impacts of climate change in the Mediterranean area.
MedClimateChange-CIRCE PlayDecide is a Playdecide-based (www.playdecide.eu) game focused on the Mediterranean, already used in some schools events.
Science communication experts from CIRCE Communication Office (formicablu srl) and a researcher from CIRCE Community (Silvio Gualdi, Centro EuroMediterraneo per I cambiamenti climatici) will show the game and its features, highlighting and discussing with the public:
− how to manage internal communication among diverse scientific communities gathered to work on complex scientific issues such as climate change;
− how to transform scientific research project’s findings into communication activities for schools;
− how to deal with the needs both of communication efficacy and scientific robustness in public communication products for schools.
