Game of Extremes

Join the City of Boulder and Boulder County to play the "Game of Extremes," a fun way to learn about climate change and resilience.

Let's prepare for change.

One of the most important ways to prepare for change is to practice how we would respond if confronted by a range of different disruptions. 

But have a little fun while we're at it.

The USDN Game of Extremes is an interactive training that helps local governments, their partners, and community members collectively assess impacts from a changing climate and co-develop strategies for action in a fun low-pressure setting. The USDN Game of Extremes training focuses on changes related to flooding and extreme heat as a result of climate change.

Be a climate planner.

 The training centers on cross-department and multi-stakeholder collaboration to assess hazards, identify vulnerability and risk, and development of a climate resilience actions based on a specific budget. This training promotes incorporation of climate resilience and equity considerations into day to day activities as well as proactive planning efforts.

And help shape Boulder's future.

Join with other community members, city and County staff, and other organizational representatives in exploring both our personal and collective resilience to future change through this fun, engaging and highly informative event.

The training will be facilitated by Kristin Baja, USDN's Program Director for Climate Resilience.  Baja combines her past experience working in both city and county government with her current work with local governments all over North America to make this experience engaging and useful for residents, public officials, community support organizations and businesses interested in improving their preparedness for the future changes related to climate change.
