Half-Earth Socialism Game Launch

May 7 @ 19:30

Half-Earth Socialism is a planetary crisis planning game that allows anyone to try their hand as a global planner of a future society. Consider it a sandbox where you can play with a wide range of technologies and policies spanning different fields and ideologies. The game simulates the impact of your decisions by calculating emissions and using a real climate model (HECTOR) to work out the climate effects, while also simulating impacts to the food system and biodiversity, among others. This game, which is inspired by the book Half-Earth Socialism, is the fruit of the labour of many designers, researchers, and artists. The game design and development was led by Francis Tseng (Jain Family Institute) and Son La Pham (Trust). Concept, Writing and research for the game was made in collaboration with Lucy Chinen, Chiara Di Leone, Drew Pendegrass, Spencer Roberts, Troy Vettese & Arthur Röing Baer.

For this hybrid launch event, we will be joined by Francis Tseng, Son La Pham & Chiara Di Leone for a streamed talk by Francis followed by a playthrough and Q&A including Son La and Chiara.
