Invest in the Future is an interactive game played with cards. It combines story-telling and strategy to engage players in thinking about the importance of taking Climate Change into consideration as they strive to make responsible, sustainable development investment decisions.

Learning objectives

Climate change is happening and the rising generation will need to understand how to make resilient development decisions in order to build the future with well-being for all.

Intended Audience

Anyone above the age of 13

Playspace requirements

Anywhere 3-5 people can sit together with a flat surface to place materials.


Invest in the Future is based on the FFDM (Flexible Forward-thinking Decision-Making) game originally designed by Antidote Games and developed with the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre for the Africa Climate Change Resilience Alliance (ACCRA) for use with district planners. This game has been redesigned as an experiential learning game for young people in Southeast Asia by the enGAgeMEnt Lab at Emerson College, in collaboration with the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre and PLAN International.
