London 2050. Cambridge 2050. Edinburgh 2040. Liverpool 2040. Manchester 2038. Bristol 2030. Newcastle 2025. The race to become Britain’s first zero carbon city is on…As the newly appointed City Mayor your task is simple: create a carbon neutral city – and show the rest of the world how it is done! It sounds easy, but you’ll soon discover that your carbon budgets are hard to balance. Can you hit the zero carbon target before it’s too late?

As part of Manchester Metropolitan University’s Cities 2050 event, we invite you to enjoy this hands-on, interactive gaming session. Carbon City Zero is a brand-new tabletop game that challenges players to think about decarbonisation and develop plans for a sustainable future.

This game is a fun way to explore what it means to be a zero-carbon city and discover the challenges, opportunities and twists that cities will have to address as they seek to cut out their carbon emissions. The gaming session will be facilitated by game creators Dr Sam Illingworth and Dr Paul Wake.

This session is part Cities 2050, a day of talks, activities and interactive sessions to get you thinking about how urban life will change over the next 30 years.
