PSENand Climate Clarity Present: The Climate Fresk

Monday, November 21


A taster workshop to experience a workshop that will build understanding of climate and actions to take in our organisations.

What? A full Climate Fresk workshop for you to sample.
In the space of 3 hours, we will:
– Play a card game in groups to learn about the systems of climate change;
– Debrief on how the information affects us; and
– Brainstorm creative ways to engage with the issue within your industry.

Who? Members of PSEN are invited to this event. For those would are interested if Climate Fresk could be useful to run in your workplace, but want to know more.

Why Climate Fresk?
Every business will have to adapt to the changes that are coming due to the climate crisis. Bringing the Fresk to your workplace gives your team the chance to get a head start on questions that will define success in the new era of business: what might the climate transition look like in our industry? What can we put in place now that will save us time and energy in the future, and set us on a futureproof course? Do we rely on toxic assets?
This game-based workshop has been played by over 500,000 people worldwide – it has swept Europe and is now starting to arrive in the UK. People across all industries are getting ready for a future that’s not far off in the distance, it’s already here. Will you be among the trailblazers for an efficient climate transition or will you be left in the dust?
Take the opportunity to meet fellow professionals working in the sustainability space. Form connections so we can make this transition collaborative and co-created. What if this is the push you’ve been looking for?

When and where? 9.00am – 12.30pm, Monday 21st November 2022, Community Climate Centre, 67 New George Street, Plymouth, PL11RJ

Don’t just take it from us…
Faith, massage therapist, 27:
‘I came into the workshop thinking I already knew a lot about climate change, but I ended up learning a fair amount of new stuff. The facilitators did a great job of guiding us towards the right answers and they were really patient when I didn’t quite get something! I liked the level it was pitched at: it was simple enough to follow but also challenging and new.
One of the best things about it was the energy in the room. You could tell everyone cared and wanted to work together to find out what we could do. It was sort of electric and exciting.
I met some cool people involved in climate-related projects in Bristol I hadn’t heard of and got a few people’s numbers. Everyone brought their own experience and expertise, so we were learning from each other as well. The game itself was actually pretty fun, even though the material is somewhat bleak!’

About the Plymouth Social Enterprise Festival 2022
Shake It Up; Interesting Times
Wednesday 16th – Wednesday 23rd November

There’s been a lot of talk about change recently. But when we’re done talking, what’s actually changed?

The 2021 Plymouth Social Enterprise Festival focused on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, so now we’ve looked at what needs to change, ‘Shake It Up; Interesting Times’ will be a week of events to look at what steps we’re taking to get there and how we can do it.

Change can be scary, so we’re going to tackle it together. You’ll be able to learn from others who have shifted their ways of working, get advice from experts about how to improve your own activities and take part in vibrant and dynamic conversations to move our enterprising city to the next stage.
We want to show that change is possible, and how all the talking can lead to positive action to benefit our society economically, environmentally and socially.
