WSP has released a scenario-planning online game to help organizations achieve sustainable development goals while expanding awareness about climate change.

The game was designed to add an interactive and dynamic dimension to how WSP engages with clients about sustainability.

“We are finding that it helps create a more engaging conversation, breaking down internal barriers and facilitating a more candid conversation about the impact of climate on an organization,” says Alastair MacGregor, president of Property and Buildings at WSP. “It can help define a path to achieve an organization’s future ready vision, while at the same time being a fun way to expand individual awareness about climate change issues and impacts.

“It makes complex climate topics real and personal, making the transformation to becoming future ready seem more achievable. By engaging with our clients in this fun and different way, we gain a more genuine understanding of their vision, and can often identify opportunities to dive deeper into strategies that provide resilience, decarbonization, and societal benefit that really resonate within their organization.”
