New mobile game to connect citizens and leaders on climate action

On Thursday, United Nations (UN) launched the Mission 1.5 campaign to educate people about climate policy and allow them to vote on possible solutions.

Developed by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Mission 1.5 campaign is described as the world’s biggest survey of public opinion on climate change. It aims to give 20 million people a chance to voice their opinions about the actions adopted by their government to address the climate emergency.

Mission 1.5 takes its name from the collective effort to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius, as agreed by world leaders in Paris in 2015, the UN revealed.

In the game, the players take on the role of climate policymakers and try to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius.

“Together with partners from across the private and public sectors, we have the ability with this campaign to connect millions of people with their governments in an innovative two-way discussion on solutions to the climate crisis, and increase ambition ahead of the COP26 climate talks in Glasgow later this year”, said Achim Steiner, UNDP Administrator.
