POWER: Art+Energy Card Game
Play to ZERO to win the great energy transition!
Play this card game to discover the beauty of renewable energy technologies and the power of art.
The twenty-three stunning artworks that are featured on these cards have the benefit of providing clean energy to the city. Together they could power 26,307 homes, demonstrating how our cities and landscapes can become more beautiful as they become more sustainable.
These entries to the Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI) design competitions are regenerative artworks for the post-carbon city—lasting and generous monuments to the 21st century’s great energy transition.
The game is the perfect STEAM tool for educators and creatives interested in the design of our energy landscapes.
Why play to ZERO?
A prosperous world that produces ZERO greenhouse gas emissions from the burning of fossil fuels will allow our planet to avoid a tipping point of runaway global warming. We can get there, but we have a long way to go. In 2017 we pumped 32.5 billion metric tons of carbon emissions into our very thin atmosphere and the number keeps rising every year. We must turn this around immediately and bring carbon emissions all the way to ZERO by the middle of the 21st century or we are risking the lives of millions of people.
The good news is that we live in a world of plenty and we already have the technology needed to bring about a prosperous and equitable net-ZERO world. If we design it, we can pass along to our children a global “circular economy” powered by the energy of the sun, wind, and water.
A circular economy is one in which we do not pollute our precious environment. Instead we use 100% biodegradable materials and reduce our waste streams to ZERO.
