How We Save The World is a story game by Coney, created in collaboration with environmental scientists and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), first presented in 2018 at The Natural History Museum, London, now re-imagined as a live online performance for our new global context.
How We Save The World distils the idea that storytelling and human connections are among the most powerful tools in climate action at its most immediate & intimate level.Matt Law, Climate Cultures
About the show
What if you had the power to save the world….
Join us for an adventure through moments in history where change might be possible, to help save the world from the worsening effects of the climate crisis.
In this playable experience, the audience takes control of the unfolding story. Guided by our expert pilots, you’ll enter the Time Machine and travel across decades and continents, landing at pivotal moments of the environmental crisis, from the South Sumatran rainforest, to a house party in Clapton.
You’ll steer the course of our collective journey by voting, speaking up and influencing other players – with plenty of laughs along the way.
By looking at how we got to where we are today, together we’ll explore moments where small actions can create a ripple of change in the world – and imagine ways to take that forward in our own lives.
After a sold-out run on 22 February we’re thrilled to present four more performances coming up in March:
