Escape rooms against climate change

It is believed that the reason behind escape rooms becoming so popular is due to the chaotic, accelerated nature of the modern day world, as they highlight the possibility of a solution, a way out. Several escape room initiatives have recently been launched to help people understand and cope with the global problem that perhaps concerns most people today: climate change.

It is believed that the reason behind escape rooms becoming so popular is due to the chaotic, accelerated nature of the modern day world, as they highlight the possibility of a solution, a way out. Several escape room initiatives have recently been launched to help people understand and cope with the global problem that perhaps concerns most people today: climate change.

climate change

Time is running out, and if we do not act or use all our knowledge and skills, we lose – sounds familiar? What if I told you that we’re actually talking about escape rooms? Now you get the idea why so many people draw a parallel between the two. It is vital to make future generations realize the importance of environment protection and that it requires attention, waste-curbing measures and, in many cases, serious sacrifices. However, for the fight to be successful, action must be taken today. To push the urgency and importance of the goal, several thematic escape rooms have been opened around the world, where players must escape the room by solving environmentally conscious tasks.

A difficult topic to talk about

Climate change is a burdensome topic that keeps people concerned all over the world - many will feel anxious and helpless when the topic comes up, or they simply want to shirk responsibility. Unlike escape rooms, you cannot escape the climate crisis, you cannot hide from it, you have to face it, you have to learn to adapt. Because of the seriousness of this topic, it was necessary to find a more lighthearted way to get the message through.

Dealing with the real issues

It’s not a coincidence that several schools, high schools, universities and even companies are trying to deepen their environmental knowledge with the help of climate change-themed escape rooms. Having fun in this case does not mean fighting zombies, werewolves and brain-eating zombies, but dealing with waste, garbage, extreme weather or pollution. And if you exceed the time limit and can't find a way out, the room will be flooded with water - figuratively, of course-, which is already endangering several islands and their wildlife today. The general experience of the organizers is that the special atmosphere of escape rooms allows people to deepen their acquired knowledge even more, since in intense situations people are more receptive to new information.

One of the best things about escape room games is the social aspect of playing. Yes, you could well book a room for yourself, but it's the social interaction that comes from playing with friends or colleagues that makes the whole experience that more exciting and immersive.
