How does just climate policy work? And what does it have to do with me? These questions are the focus of the new modular workshop concept "Mission possible" that we have developed for the Friedrich Ebert Foundation. The demand for more "climate justice" can be heard at many climate protests: the global North should no longer live at the expense of the South, climate protection and social issues must be thought of together. But what does that mean? Young people think about this in the nine modules of the workshop. It is rather untypical for us that there is no simulation game at the centre. But of course all the methods are as interactive as ever.

We have adapted some classics, such as bingo, step-by-step, pub quiz or timeline, to the theme, but we have also developed completely new methods. In a quartet game, participants compare 32 climate protection measures that are either already being implemented, under discussion or still pure fiction. How much CO2 can be saved if every roof is covered with solar cells or if all coal is immediately left in the ground? What is easier to implement: lowering indoor temperatures by default or abolishing all climate-damaging subsidies? Does it cost more to expand car sharing or to promote electric cars by the state? A special feature is the Climate Justice Index, which assesses all measures in terms of their social and societal effects and is intended to stimulate discussion and reflection on key justice dimensions: Distribution, gender/sex, urban/rural, generations, global.

While the quartet focuses on the national level, the module "Climate Scouts" looks at the individual and local level. In a kind of rally through the school building or youth centre, the young people solve tasks with which they scrutinise the sustainability of their lifestyle and their immediate surroundings: How high is the proportion of meat in the school meals? Are there more car parking spaces than bicycle stands? Does the school have a solar system? Where is energy wasted in the building? What are the possibilities for climate-friendly school trips? How long do smartphones last? 

In this way, the participants learn about their own possibilities for action in the most important fields of climate protection: Energy, mobility, nutrition, consumption. And this module also ends with the question of what is fair. Because the possibilities are distributed differently in society. The longest module, the Future Workshop, has a similar approach, but at the next higher level: the participants creatively work out an action plan for local climate projects in three phases.

The modules build on each other, but are also relatively independent and can be combined in different ways and conducted as a morning, a full day or even as a two-day programme. 

If you are interested in carrying them out, please contact us at or the project team at Friedrich Ebert Foundation

By the way: We would also be happy to develop a modular workshop offer for your topic!
