From solving puzzles to quick-fire challenges and creative campaign planning, small groups will learn about climate change while having fun with their friends.

On a video call system such as Zoom or Microsoft Teams, players will enter an hour-long scenario in which they are challenged to help their church, community and country to take climate action. Priest and BBC Radio 2 Pause for Thought contributor, Rev. Virginia Luckett, plays the vicar in the game.

Dr Ruth Valerio, Director of Global Advocacy and Influencing at Tearfund, said: “Crack the ClimateSilencer is a really fun way for us to socialise and engage with each other on a topic that is so important to all of us. It’s perfect to play with work colleagues, church small groups and your family.

“The world’s poorest communities are witnessing an intensification of extreme weather that destroys homes, crops and livelihoods and puts millions of lives at risk.

“I hope that Crack the ClimateSilencer inspires more people to reduce their carbon footprint and lobby Governments and businesses to mitigate climate change through concrete action.”

Crack the ClimateSilencer is a game designed for groups of between four and ten people. One person will need to register to host the game by visiting www.tearfund.org/escaperoom

Crack The ClimateSilencer is part of Tearfund’s drive to grow the movement of UK Christians praying, acting and campaigning for climate change mitigation throughout 2021.

Notes to Editors

Earlier this year, Tearfund co-created a Climate Emergency Toolkit to help churches and Christian organisations take urgent action in response to the climate crisis.

The Tearfund website also has a nine part film series on climate change, designed to be watched by Church Small Groups.

Tearfund is part of the The Climate Coalition which is calling on the UK government to lead the world in a healthier, greener, fairer economic recovery, which limits warming to 1.5°C.
