Changing the Game is an exciting and fun energy policy simulation that lets players take control of Southeast Asia's energy future using LEGO® blocks. In a board game format, players take the roles of Citizens, Governments, Businesses and NGOs to implement a variety of energy policies that will Change a pre-given 2030 Business as Usual (BAU) baseline scenario.
Players take into account future needs vs. present needs, reduce emissions, diversify their fuel supply mix, adopt electric vehicles, trade technologies, negotiate for pan-regional solutions and work together (or against each other) to Change the Game.
Changing the Game was developed in 2009 by Energy Crossroads Denmark to guide informed discussions about the future of energy consumption and production. In 2011, Energy Carta adapted and developed it into a Southeast Asian version, and was first introduced at the Asian Youth Energy Summit 2012.
We organize Changing the Game as an integral component of the Asian Youth Energy Summit. The game is played over 2 days as part of the conference. Our last CtG event (Energy Connect, held in conjunction with the Energy Market Authority of Singapore) recently concluded in June 2013. Please sign up for our mailing list to be updated about the next game to be held at AYES 2014.
Alternatively, you are very welcome to join our internal training and research sessions (or even join the CtG team as a volunteer!) which we perform every month or so - please drop us a line at email@example.com if you are interested in taking part. These sessions take about 3 to 6 hours over a weekend.
