It's almost Election Day, and your ballot initiative is clinging to a narrow lead in the polls. Voters are concerned about effects on jobs and cost of living, and the press is waiting for answers about difficult policy questions. An angry fossil fuel CEO has contacted you with a proposal that sounds an awful lot like a threat. And do I smell smoke??
Deal: A Green New Election is a decision-making game, where you guide your environmental ballot initiative through the last 15 weeks of a rocky election campaign.
The Green New Deal would mobilize the workforce to build clean energy and resilient infrastructure, while addressing environmental justice and income inequality along the way. But do you have the passion and skill to get your initiative passed?
You make decisions in this highly replayable game by simply swiping either left or right. The scenarios are based on actual polling data and climate communication research, and are inspired by real-world heroes of environmental justice.
The climate crisis is the greatest challenge that humanity faces, and so much is riding on our actions over the next few years. We've slept on climate for too long and it's time for us to deal with it: with the Green New Deal!
