Beat the Uncertainty: Planning Climate-Resilient Cities

You and your fellow players are the leaders—citizens, policymakers, business leaders, nonprofit leaders, and researchers—of a coastal city. Your job is to make smart decisions that will increase the city’s resilience to climate change.

Beat the Uncertainty game graphic - Dice sinking in the water, waves tossing a boat full of marbles, the water rises as shops and a hotel on a boardwalk are threatened by the rising sea level.  A child can be seen in the background of this tiny simulated coastal town, placing another marble onto the tiny boat.
