How do you make the realities of the environment accessible and engaging? People have tried all sorts of methods, from bucket challenges to eye-popping art. But a new study suggests that a simulated role-playing game could be the best way to inspire environmental action.

This game is called World Climate Simulation, and it’s essentially Model UN meets Choose Your Own Adventure. Players are broken into teams representing different countries, all with different resources and concerns. They lobby for certain actions, debating other teams throughout the game for the best solution. When coalitions reach an agreement, they tell the moderator — and that’s when things get interesting.
